Success.
Fiscal Responsibility.
Special Needs Success.

Six children all through Catholic Education. All different types of learners.

Reality.
Private Catholic Education continues to offer the best product for the buck.

lets look at the failed charter schools just in columbus.

A school choice group that pumped millions of dollars into helping get its candidates elected in Ohio, Wisconsin and other states has yet to pay a record $5.2 million fine imposed three years ago by Ohio election officials, according to the state attorney general.

The fine imposed on All Children Matter languishes even as Ohio Gov. John Kasich pushes a $55.5 billion budget proposal that would continue to expand school choice, doubling the number of school vouchers in the state and lifting a cap on community schools.

I would probably say that 5.2 million was more of a campaign gift. All I hear from Kasich is talking about accountability for the local government. Where is his accountability. Giving money to Jobsohio and Charter schools and stating they dont have to keep records where TAXPAYERS money is going. Another prime example of Kasich with the do as I say instead of do as I do approach.

Where is the 8 BILLION dollar handout to the unions? You want to run your mouth about it. Tell us oh wise one. Because you can't. But are you to stupid to read that charter schools gave Kasich a hefty contribution and in return Kasich gave them more vouchers. TAXPAYERS money with no accountability of how they spend it. How stupid are you if you think that is good business? JUST THE FACTS. Reading your comments I would say pretty stupid.

And that added up to 8 billion. I guess I went to the wrong college to get my masters. Last time I took a math class that doesn't quite add to a million. Guess that is kasich's and your math. Lets look at the money that Kasich gave to charter schools. MMMMM I think it is about 10 times the amount you just showed. So till you can show the 8 billion dollars you talk about that was given away. You will be a liar. That or just stupid. I would guess stupid.

Uh...no. This would be influence peddling...very common.
Refer to articles regarding lobbyist.
Point of reference.

Check out all union political contributions on former Sec of State website for union contributions. Money buys power, buys benefits and favors for lobbyist like union bosses.
