The state budget Governor Kasich signed last week puts more than 19 billion dollars of state funding into Ohio schools. State GOP leaders are calling it a historic investment in education.
Overall, most schools will see more money from the state than they did last year, nearly $1 billion more. But not every district will get more money—about a third of districts won’t see any increase. And even this new money will not make up for the deep cuts in state funding for schools in 2009.
