More ideas for funding Ohio's schools
September 23, 2008
At its meeting this month, the State Board of Education's school funding subcommittee approved for dissemination a draft of Toward Recommendations for School Funding Reform in Ohio (see here). The recommendations-18 of them-tackle how much to spend on K-12 education and how to allocate it-including such Gadfly-sanctioned ideas as Weighted Student Funding (see here)-but do not address tax policies and where the money will come from, as those are decisions that fall largely to the legislature. Interested parties may submit comments about the draft here.
