The Ohio Department of Education’s Office of Communications is making life easier for radio stations and online news sites by providing informative educational programming that is easy to access and user friendly. The Ohio Education Minute is a 60-second message from the Department of Education that will update listeners about the many reforms in education, as well as the successes that districts, schools and students are experiencing.
