Since taking office, Governor Kasich has cut more than over $500 million from Ohio’s public schools and increased funding for failing charter schools. In recent days, almost every major newspaper in Ohio has run a story or an editorial about this flawed system. We’ve pointed to the governor’s cuts to public education for some time. Check out what others are saying about the failing charter schools into which our tax dollars are flowing:
“Charter schools have changed the landscape of public education in Ohio. For the most part, the changes have worked to the detriment of traditional public school districts. As a three-part report in the Beacon Journal this week demonstrates, this unfortunate result is due largely to state laws that have imposed financial burdens on districts without ensuring consistent oversight and accountability for the use of public funds by privately operated charter schools.” Click here to sign our petition asking Governor Kasich to support public education.
“While Ohio lawmakers fail to take steps to hold charter schools more accountable for how they use millions of dollars in tax money, evidence mounts that this lax approach yields bad results……. This has left little way to judge whether public money is being spent reasonably, and the abysmal academic track record of some of the biggest recipients suggests it often isn’t.” Click here to sign our petition asking Governor Kasich to support public education.

“’The growing problem is we don’t know how most of these taxpayer dollars are being spent,’(State Senator Joe) Schiavoni said.
