Columbus, OH - Ohio will launch a comprehensive campaign to break down silos and improve the quality of early childhood education programs after The White House announced Friday that Ohio was one of nine states chosen to receive a federal Race to the Top (RttT) – Early Learning Challenge Grant.

Ohio will receive up to $70 million to improve the quality of programs that serve high-needs children from birth to five years and to carefully measure the results of programs in alignment with Governor John Kasich's goals of creating better metrics and coordination among agencies that serve young people.
