Editorial on school funding was misleading

June 28, 2012
The Marietta Times

The editorial, "Just tossing more money at schools won't solve problems," is misleading and paints an incomplete picture about Ohio's recent school funding history. For the record, the Rutgers/Education Law Center report from the story praised school funding in Ohio as fair and adequate, using 2009 data. In 2009, funding reforms in House Bill 1, signed by then-Gov. Ted Strickland, added to fairness. More recently, schools took $2.9 billion in cuts from our current governor, who threw out the old funding formula without establishing a new one. This year's data will surely tell a more dismal school funding story.
