The Damage Continues…
After a difficult day, Ohio School Boards Association deputy executive director Rob Delane was dead on in saying that state cuts have led to the increase in requests. Read the Plain Dealer article here for a full rundown.
As we’ve shown with www.CutsHurtOhio.com, every single county in Ohio has seen millions in dollars of cuts to K-12 education and millions of cuts to local governments – no wonder there are levies to fill the gaps. And even when levies pass, like one did in Groveport Madison, there will still be less resources to support public education.
The damage continues, and it is very likely only to get worse as the Local Government Fund cuts doubled in July and schools run out of any savings they’ve burned through in the past year.
