Most School Tax Issues Defeated This Week in Ohio

Paradox 56

COLUMBUS, Ohio - This week's special election was one of the toughest in years for Ohio school districts.

The Ohio School Boards Association says voters approved just six of the 23 school tax requests on the ballot around the state on Tuesday. That works out to a passage rate of 26 percent, the lowest in an August election since the 14 percent approved in 2007.
