School Funding Ohio

    FILE – In this March 25, 2019 file photo, Ohio State Reps. Bob Cupp, R-Lima, left, and John Patterson,
    D-Jefferson, center, announce their proposed overhaul of Ohio’s school funding formula at the Statehouse
    in Columbus. Ohio lawmakers considering public input on proposed school-funding changes are hearing from
    lots of interested parties who say it’s a solid start to the discussion but want more: more money for
    certain schools, more clarity on charter-school funding changes, more help for the economically
    disadvantaged. Ohio would increase spending on schools by an estimated $1.2 billion for a two-year
    period under a plan from lawmakers who studied the issue.
