Students: Build your leadership skills

ACES playing cardsAre you looking for a way to build your leadership experience or be more involved within the College of Education?
Consider joining the Akron Council of Education Students (ACES), a student group of current and potential Education students at The University of Akron.
ACES is a student organization dedicated to enhancing communications between education students by promoting fellowship and supplement professional training through extra- and co-curricular activities related to education.
Past experiences have included participating in Relay for Life and also giving dictionaries to local elementary schools in a partnership with the Rotary Club.
We are currently looking for students to fill leadership positions. For more information, or to join, please contact Dr. Rachel Boit, faculty advisor, at

Core Values

For some classes, Common Core standards are too rigorous; for others, too easy

Lisa LenhartLisa Lenhart was making small talk with a mom who asked for her thoughts about the Common Core. "What we're hearing," the woman told her, "is that they're dumbing things down for our students."

But Lenhart had just witnessed a teacher in another school district struggling to implement the standards within her classroom.  For some classes, Common Core standards are too rigorous; for others, too easy. What's the solution?

Lenhart and other N.E. Ohio educators help to answer ten questions about Common Core values in the special section of the October 2014 issue of Cleveland Magazine.
