Ohio School Funding

The Sound of Ideas

Governor John Kasich had a simple explanation last week as he unveiled the state's new school funding formula. He said, "If you are poor, you're going to get more. If you are rich, you're going to get less." Turns out the calculus is a little more complicated than that. Some poor districts such as East Cleveland won't get more. And some rich ones, such as Orange, will. We'll explain the formula and discuss whether this actually fixes entrenched inequities in the way Ohio funds schools, Tuesday at 9 with host Mike McIntyre on the Sound of Ideas.
