Central 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. 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.
