The process began with the formulation of a key strategic question, known as the focal issue. This
question, How can urban public education in Ohio transform to become a high-demand, highperforming
system in 2020? guided all subsequent work on the project.
Next, the group explored trends identified on the Map of Future Forces Affecting Education in
various “impact areas” including family and community, markets, institutions, educators and
learning, and tools and practices. Participants agreed on the two uncertainties most critical and
relevant to the focal issue:
• The urban core and whether it will continue to decay or develop vitality
• The policy environment and whether it will become more prescriptive or more flexible
