Education Official To Talk With State Lawmakers

Feb 14, 2013

The head of the Governor's Office of 21st Century Education says he'll present figures to an Ohio House budget-writing committee that prove the new school funding proposal delivers on Governor Kasich's promise to help poor districts the most.

Richard Ross says the new formula funnels the largest amount of money - 27 percent of what Ohio spends - to the state's 14 large urban districts. Superintendents were upset at district-by-district funding breakdowns. Sixty percent of districts' allotments turned out to be flat.
