$55 Million Lost to Charter Schools

One of the engines driving the statewide grass roots movement to restore local control of Ohio’s public schools is the significant amount of state and local funding lost to charter schools.  As a result, a number of boards of education have begun to invoice the state of Ohio for the loss of funds incurred by their school districts.  On November 19, the Elyria City Schools Board of Education added its name to this growing list of school boards by passing a resolution to invoice the Ohio Department of Education for $55,657,478.26 in state and local funding lost to charter schools between fiscal year 2002 and 2015.
