Cleveland officially named a Say Yes to Education community

"Other support services that will be offered by Say Yes to Education Cleveland include school-based family support specialists, mental health services and legal clinics. Say Yes to Education requires programs to be rolled out to all students within six years. According to the release, Cleveland has a plan to complete that within four years, starting in the 2019-2020 school year. The city of Cleveland, Cuyahoga County, the Cleveland Metropolitan School District, the Cleveland Council of Administrators and Supervisors, the Cleveland Teachers Union and the Cleveland Public Library will be working together to deliver these services.

Schools can overcome the effects of poverty, but those effects exist, Gordon said. Students in the district know their families often can't afford higher education, so they don't aspire to it. And Gordon said that mentality has "permeated" the community, as well."
