Ohio education officials plan to provide further details of Gov. John Kasich’s proposed changes to the funding of public school districts and regulation of charter schools.
The Republican governor on Monday unveiled a $72.3 billion, two-year state operating budget. It calls for cracking down on charter school sponsors rated ineffective or poor under a new state law.
The budget proposal also makes revisions to Ohio’s school funding formula that the governor says better reflect the income levels of different districts. He says the changes for the first time allow the state to collect money from wealthier districts that are better able to afford the costs of operation so the money can be given to needier districts.
Kasich also wants to see early college opportunities expanded.
