Governor Kasich has released his long awaited plan for funding Ohio’s schools. Kettering Republican Senator Peggy Lehner is the Chair of the Senate Education Committee. She joins McCord to discuss the impact of the Governor's education proposal.
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 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.
This week, Gov. John Kasich releases his long-awaited school funding formula to school superintendents and officials, and then statewide in a live virtual town hall meeting Thursday night. Details are scarce but there is a lot of speculation on what might be in this plan.
Gov. Kasich has referred to his formula several times, including in a speech last month.
