In March 1999, Achieve conducted a review of Ohio's school improvement efforts to provide the newly elected governor, new state superintendent, business leaders and other policymakers with a candid review of state education reform strengths and weaknesses and recommended next steps. The evaluation focused on the state's current expectations for student learning, its assessment system and its plans to improve school accountability. The Ohio Business Roundtable, the governor's office and the Ohio Department of Education co-planned and sponsored Achieve's review.
