Public schools are the heart of local communities and are open to all—serving 90% of Ohio’s students.

However, vital funding is diverted away from public school students to provide EdChoice vouchers—paying private school tuition for some students. This reduced funding has real implications such as larger class sizes, reduced educational opportunities and increased pressure on local taxpayers.

We need the Senate to take action and pass the House version of Senate Bill 89 by the April 1 deadline. This legislation has the support of the public education community and would move away from basing voucher eligibility on flawed report cards and toward funding vouchers directly by the state rather than by deducting funding from public schools.
