The May 2013 installment of SOCHE TALKS features Kurt Rinehart from the Miami Conservancy on how the great Dayton food prompted innovation in the Miami Valley.
The SOCHE Talks are a collaboration with the Southwest Ohio Council for Higher Education. In this monthly series we’ll hear from faculty and staff from areas colleges and universities on a wide variety of subjects. It's an effort to bring Miami Valley research and thinking into the public arena – a way to enlighten the world with local knowledge.
A new study released Friday by the Fordham institute gauged Ohio superintendents' views on education reform in the state. One notable finding is that the majority of Superintendents support the Common Core, an initiative that has caused some controversy. Emily McCord spoke to the Fordham Institutes' Terry Ryan and the lead researcher on the project, Steve Farkas and began by asking Terry about the purpose of the study.
