Living in John Kasich's Ohio

Via Ohioans united

One of the best things we can do for every child is to see that he or she has a quality education. That’s something that will put them on a path to a bright future. Properly-funded public schools are essential if we are to ensure that all children – no matter where they live or who their parents are- receive the education they deserve. That’s why it is so disheartening to see Gov. Kasich shifting millions and millions of dollars from public schools into failing charter schools.

And remember – every dollar given to a failing charter school is a dollar less for traditional public schools. Since taking office, Kasich has cut more than half a billion dollars in state funding for public schools. The result is over 90% of public schools have had to make cuts, including teachers and course offerings.

To me, as a teacher and a mom, it is the height of irresponsibility for the governor to be taking money out of a system that provides a quality education to Ohio’s children and shift the funds into schools that are failing at an alarming rate. Ohio’s kids deserve better.
