Seniors in the School of Education and Allied Professions will be sharpening their pencils and breaking out their creative lesson plans this fall if they plan on teaching in Ohio after graduation.

In December 2011, the U.S. Department of Education and President Barack Obama announced Ohio as one of nine states that would receive grant awards from the $500 million Race to the Top — Early Learning Challenge fund to improve learning conditions for children from low-income families.

SOEAP professor Tom Lasley said Ohio submitted a strong proposal for the grant, and the state is committed to enhancing early learning.

“Students graduating will have to keep up with the academic standards now and make sure students learn,” he said.

Ben Moore, a senior education major, said any initiative to improve education at the youngest levels is important.

“Early years form the groundwork for what kind of students they are going to be,” he said.
