Pay to Participate Tax dollars fund public schools, but in some districts, taxes alone aren't enough to cover kids who want to do more than just hit the books. Increasingly across Ohio, parents are taking a hit to the wallet, paying fees to allow their students to take the stage, storm the field, sink a shot or bang a drum. Public school isn't free. Should it be? Join us with your thoughts, Monday at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas.
