Governor Kasich unveiled his school-funding overhaul Thursday to superintendents in Columbus. The highlights of the plan include giving a boost to districts with limited income, introduce changes to promote innovation and performance, and increasing tax-supported school vouchers.More >>
Ohio's governor is proposing a school-funding overhaul he says will help poor districts compete more evenly while introducing changes to promote innovation and performance.
The plan unveiled by Republican John Kasich on Thursday is focused on giving all students the resources to succeed. Kasich's funding plan would boost districts that are lagging in property values and household incomes.
Kasich education advisers say no schools will see reduced funding next year under the current formula, and overall funding will rise. A special fund would be created to reward districts for efficiency and advances.
The plan also offers help for extra costs of special-needs students, and to provide more school choice.
The long-awaited plan is expected to kick off months of debate over Ohio's education direction.
