Ohio Lawmaker Wants Tax Break For Home-Schooling

A state lawmaker in Ohio wants to provide a tax break to property owners who home-school their children.

The proposal comes from state Sen. Kris Jordan of Ostrander in central Ohio.

His bill would reduce property taxes for parents who home-school their children by an amount equal to what they pay for school levies in their local districts.

According to The Plain Dealer, Jordan says the legislation will help those who sacrifice to home-school a child.

One leading school group argues that the measure could lead to more tax breaks at the expense of public education.
