  Original Published: 5/22/2013Mansfield City Schools, Ohio State-Mansfield, and North-Central State College are hosting a two-day conference called Beginning Anew. OSU-M Dean and Director Dr. Stephen Gavazzi says faculty, staff, and board members for the two colleges and the school district are entering a second year of discussions of how the problems many children have at home, that prevent them from doing well in school, can be solved. Mansfield Schools Superintendent Dan Freund says the district has made academic progress over the last year, with Newman Elementary School winning an award from the Ohio Department of Education as a School of Honor, and preliminary Ohio Graduation Test scores show marked improvement.  A big part of the discussion is overcoming poverty as a barrier to academic performance, and economic growth, with poverty expert Phil Devol, author of the books "Getting Ahead in a Just Gettin' By World" and "Bridges Out of Poverty" facilitating that discussion. The Beginning Anew conference continues Thursday, focusing on how social service agency and business leaders can get involved in improving academic performance in Mansfield Schools.
