Our Data

All information is from the U.S. Census Bureau and the Ohio Department of Education.

It is important to remember that while these graphs and charts illustrate trends, correlation does not imply causation.

School district over time

Over the past decade, the enrollment in the public schools has plummeted.

Now the question is: what caused this dramatic shift, how does it affect the quality of education within our school district and its reputation, and what can be done about it? In a district where there seems to be a lack of economic and educational capital amongst a large percentage of the student population, social capital must become the backbone of our schools.

Our goal is to identify the myths that keep middle-class families from enrolling their children in the public schools and shed light on the real Arc experience. Together, with the help of our community, we can help change perceptions.

    1. We are a pro-public schools organization! Our data suggests that over the past 15 years, there has been declining middle class support for our community’s public schools and our goal is to reverse this trend.
