School funding ABCs

Uh oh. Now it’s the teachers unions, vs. Ohio’s Republican state senators on ideas proposed in Columbus for funding schools.

The GOP-majority Ohio Senate wants more money for school district funding. Differing is the Democrat-majority Ohio House of Representatives.

The Democrat-leaning Ohio Education Association, which is teachers unions especially in urban areas, calls the Republican-majority Senate version “a woeful disappointment in many ways.”

Caught between both sides, maybe also in woeful ways, are taxpayers, parents and especially the students.
