A Call to Action
On Wednesday, 46 statewide leaders of the Ohio Public School Advocacy Network received a call to action from the creators of Ohio’s Fair School Funding Plan (H.B. 305). In a 7 p.m. Zoom call with Akron Public Schools Chief Financial Officer Ryan Pendleton, Jim Betts and State Representative John Patterson, they explained that the level of legislative support for this major change in how Ohio’s public schools are funded has reached a tipping point. What this means is that there will be a strong push to get this bill over the goal line soon after the November election during the lame duck session of the Ohio General Assembly.
