Ohio governor takes school-funding plan to SW Ohio

Associated Press • Feb 1, 2013 at 8:10 PM

Kasich told area school superintendents and other education and business representatives at Taft Information Technology High School in Cincinnati on Friday that past political decisions have resulted in disparities in school funding.

The governor says his plan will distribute resources so all students will receive what they need to compete and succeed.

The overall reaction at Friday's event seemed positive, while most also say they are awaiting the specifics for individual districts to be released next week.

The $15.1 billion, two-year plan boosts K-12 spending by $1.2 billion over the current budget cycle.
