Board to discuss role in adult education

        The Cincinnati Board of Education Monday agreed to discuss with the superintendent the district's plan for future vocational and adult education programs.

        The board unanimously passed a motion that called for a full-scale discussion to determine what the district's role should be in adult education.

        The move questions the district's process of eliminating its adult education offerings.

        “I think it is significant and we do need to take an important look at where we are,” board member Catherine Ingram said. “I don't want it to get lost in committee.”

        Lynn Marmer, board vice president, said that before the board can direct the administration, it needs more details.

        “We need a discussion on where the board is. Should we provide adult education or not?” she said.

        Much adult education is now offered by others, including Great Oaks Institute of Technology and Career Development and Cincinnati State Technical College.
