Webster’s dictionary defines the word inspired as causing something to happen or be created. The spirit of creativity is at the core of the $250 million Straight A Fund, launched in 2013 to spur innovation in Ohio’s classrooms. As our youngest citizens enter school each day, we need to know they are forming the knowledge and skills they’ll need to succeed in a 21st-century workplace that demands creativity and innovation. What kinds of schools can best deliver? Only those that are inspired. | See Also: Straight A Fund Annual Report
