The Innovation Ohio Education Fund has not only shaped the conversation, we have successfully pushed for meaningful legislative changes that positively impact Ohio schools, communities, and working families.
After publishing a report about the benefits of paid parental leave, we helped the mayors in Dayton and Cincinnati become the first two cities in Ohio to offer paid maternity and paternity leave to city employees.
We also played a key role in pushing through a critical charter school reform bill (House Bill 2).
The Ohio Children’s Budget Coalition and Women’s Public Policy Network are actively working to ensure that Ohio’s biennial operating budget bill adequately funds programs and services that support Ohio women, children, and families.
Innovation Ohio Education Fund is a nonpartisan 501c(3) organization dedicated to promoting public policy that moves Ohio ahead without leaving some of its people behind. We advocate policies that strengthen the middle class, protect the less advantaged, equalize opportunity, and ensure that businesses large and small have the tools they need to innovate, compete, and create well-paying, long-term jobs.
