Margaret Mead: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”

A small group of public school superintendents met in 2014 to share their concerns about the negative impact that the education reform movement was having on their staff, students and communities. As a result of that meeting, the Ohio Public School Advocacy Network was formed to bring Ohio’s citizens together to discuss the situation and help shape future statewide education policy. 

OPSAN’s statewide leadership team includes many of the superintendents who help found this statewide network, members of the transition team who are currently working to turn it into a community-based grassroots movement, and the superintendents and other civic leaders who are piloting the transition.
