Should the State of Ohio provide taxpayer funding to charter schools?
When I vote for a Delaware City School levy I expect those funds should be spent to educate students in the public schools. Anyone who wants or wishes to have their child or children educated in a private school should pay for that out their own money. Charter Schools are in essence private schools and they are not really accountable to the tax payer not matter how you try to argue or prove it.
You are so correct when you write; “no mat¬ter how you try to argue or prove it” so let me EDUCATE! • Ohio has no Charter Schools, by Ohio Law there are two types of state schools, Traditional Schools (TS) and Community Schools (CS) • TS are governed by elected board therefore TS may request a tax levy and receive funds in addition to the State Foundation per pupil funding • CS are governed by appointed board therefore CS only receive State Foundation per pupil funding • Another huge difference CS must provide and pay all facilities costs; TS receive additional state building funds and/or bond monies to pay for their facilities • CS students must meet all state education test and standards; one of which is CS cannot charge any type of Fees
