Kasich and his GnOP buddies oppose a school program that actually educates all children from all socio-economic groups. They rely on a large group of uninformed voters to support the smoke and mirrors they promote which is nothing more than a "rich-get richer" scheme that keeps every middle class individual moving back down the ladder of success.

Nothing is more threatening than a well-educated electorate so his side will always oppose education reform under a guise of "freedom of choice."

We can be sure that neither Strickland nor Kasich is worthy to run our lives. The History of forced schooling by Government is full of evil and any plan to continue it and force us to pay for it is more evil.

In 2006, Strickland pledged to fix Ohio's unconstitutional school-funding system or otherwise be considered a failed governor.

Governor Strickland Mission Accomplished.

FAILED.

Funding a program 10 years later after you are in office?!
Strickland policy proposals...you gotta love the bold inaction! sarcasm intented.

This is an example of FAILED leadership, FAILED policy initiative, FAILED planning.

Vote for a New Direction for Ohio Children.
Vote Kasich for a Better Tomorrow.

Property owners are paying the freight and we are tired of carrying the load especially when the teacher's salaries continue to go up and the kids keep getting dumber. Look at your next real estate tax bill and see how much you are paying for the free loaders who don't pay a dime. Get the teacher's union out of public education!!!

I am certain Kasich would scrap a whole host of things that will hurt Ohio. I am not pro Strickland but, I fear Kasich would be worst for Ohio. He can not be trusted - As a congressman, John Kasich supported NAFTA and trade deals for countries like China that shipped Ohio jobs overseas. If that were not enough, he refused to support trade adjustment assistance programs that helped displaced workers retrain for better jobs in the new economy. There is no question -- John Kasich can't be trusted to create jobs here in Ohio.That is why I will not vote for him.

NAFTA...NAFTA...NAFTA....How tiresome.

Wasn't that trade agreement signed by President Clinton. I agree it was started by the Bush administration but Clinton could have just as easily killed it. He chose not to.

I guess we will be voting for the lesser of two evils AGAIN this election! What a sad state of affairs. No doubt neither is qualified to improve our state as a whole, they will just support their pet projects.

I, too, am tired of supporting education with property taxes when the freeloaders that drag the system down suck up the most attention at school.

As he should. I'm not the only observer to conclude that the one success of public education is that it has produced an entire generation of morons while producing fat pensions for teachers unions and fatter salaaries for union bossses. Anybody remember seeing such vast armies of idiots when the Jesuits instructed our youth?

I truly do not trust Kasich. In fact I fear Kasich.

There is no easy answer to the school funding issue.

I am so tired of seeing some school have all kinds of extras while the majority of our schools just have the classes needed.

A child in Scioto County has the same right to a good education as does the child in Dublin City Schools. But you put them side by side and you will see a big difference.

Who ever is going to be our next Governor he MUST level the playing field so to speak for ALL children in the State of Ohio.

In 1 school district in Perry County some kids go to kindergarten all day every day where some go 2 days per week all day and every other Friday. How is that fair.
Kindergarten should be all day everyday. Again level the playing field

Strickland's evidence based school funding was concocted with the same fuzzy math used to whitewash the pubic with Obama's healthcare monstrosity. Both were created with bogus numbers, and both will bankrupt government. Please get rid of both before it's too late.

A lot of the extras in Dublin are paid for my the parents, not from the tax money.

We have private fundraisers to pay for things like the sports teams and the band.

You are also welcome to pay the same tax rate as I do. So, let's be fair and chage every homeowner the same rate too.
You cannot be serious

If you read the article, the way that Kasich wants to fund it would mean scrapping the current plan and relying MORE on local property taxes. Is that part of his "get rid of the income tax" plan because it sounds paying more taxes locally is going to cost me more. Not a very good plan, in my opinion.

The kids are getting "dumber" because the parents are getting lazier and more uninvolved with their children. Teachers can only do so much in the classrooms, those kids need a good home environment to really excel in school. As parents, we need to quit relying on the schools to raise our children and take some personal responsibility on how our kids turn out.
Oh boy

Either way, whether via property taxes or via income taxes, the Ohio taxpayer is going to have to pay for the schools. Until someone takes control back from the teacher's union, our taxes (either property or income) will continue to increase to pay for average salary increases of over 5% for teachers.

Someone needs to get control over the exorbitant benefits we're paying teachers and public employees. Guaranteed pensions are a thing of the past. The private sector realized that about 30 years ago. The only reason that public sector hasn't followed suit is because the unions are too powerful and public services are a monopoly that is funded by simply increasing taxes.
Oh boy

If we didn't have to pay such high taxes (both property and income) maybe parents wouldn't have to be working 2 or 3 jobs to be able to support their families and might have time to spend with them.

You are exactly right!!! It is the same way in Hilliard too. We have many fundraisers and a lot of PARENT volunteers to help cut down cost. It would be nice if the property taxes where less but we voted for them to give our children a better chance for the future and I would do it again.

The current plan may not be perfect, but at least it's a plan. How many years did the GOP controlled statehouse have the opportunity to fix this and did nothing? Just saying.....
