School Funding in Ohio
In his budget proposal, Gov. John Kasich planned to cut funding from most school districts in the state of Ohio. He no longer wants to pay for "phantom students," which are students who don't actually attend schools in funded districts, but further funding cuts can negatively impact the quality of education in those districts. Today we'll talk about how Ohio schools are funded and what education funding analysts would like to see change.
