Strong Public Schools

Citizen Town Halls

Public school funding in Ohio remains far behind where it was for children in school districts during the Great Recession. In all, 395 Ohio districts will get less funding in 2018-2019, adjusted for inflation, than in 2010-2011.

For Our Future Ohio and partners, including Innovation Ohio and ProgressOhio, hosted a series of Citizen Town Halls to bring current issues in the statehouse to the people and to inform them how to positively influence legislation that affects their families and communities. A central focus of the town halls was the Republican state budget’s inadequate funding for education.
