Cleveland’s Big Levy The Cleveland Metropolitan School District hopes voters will endorse its reform plan by approving its request to raise property taxes. The size of the request, though, was an eye-opener many. The schools want a 15-mill tax increase, which translates to about $300 more per year for the owner of an average home. How will they sell it? And what happens to reform if Cleveland residents aren't buying? Let's talk about it Tuesday at 9:00 on the Sound of Ideas.
