Hear ye, hear ye!  The Governor has spoken (through the Kasich/Taylor for Ohio website, anyway).  Governor Kasich has announced a “Virtual Town Hall” this Thursday night and he wants your questions.  Well, not YOUR questions exactly, but the questions of those like-minded individuals who receive campaign updates through his candidate website (protected from certain public records laws, by the way).  And by Virtual Town Hall, we assume it’s like a town hall, but one in which he will only discuss his talking points, not those of the “town”.

See Kasich’s invitation below and head out to his Facebook page and use the identified Twitter hashtag to flood Kasich with your questions about Ohio’s school funding model (eliminated two years ago and not yet replaced).  Yesterday, we explained why we expect Kasich’s new model to be heavy on charter schools, private school vouchers, and the failed “money follows the child” concept of funding.


Kasich’s Facebook page is available by clicking here.

The broadcast will be playing at www.kasichforohio.com/live on Thursday at 6:00 pm.

Please post your questions for Kasich on his page and in our comments section below so that others may also take the opportunity to ask the most interesting and burning questions.  Don’t be shy — post questions liberally!  And add @plunderbund to your tweets and Facebook posts so they’ll know who sent you!

    better yet. Google “Contact John Kasich” and submit your question that way. While you are at it, ask him why he is using a campaign website to solicit public input.

  • WKYC (http://tinyurl.com/ants5ln) has news on Kasich’s latest reformer for education–Marguerite Roza. Roza’s proposals has lots of flaws, including a lack of educational scientific research (http://tinyurl.com/aorj3ox). Teachers and educators should get ready for another attack on public schools from Kasich and friends.

    @JohnKasich How much campaign money do you receive from the Charter schools that you plan on having the state of Ohio fund? #OHEdu

    More theater. But it will be hard to beat a video showing him at a fork in the road out in the middle of nowhere blathering about the direction for Ohio. I don’t know that anyone ever figured out the purpose of that act of stupidity.

    What I would like to know is when will the parent and the students start to become part of the equation? You cannot have true school reform when only one side of the triangle is being singled out for “reform”. At some point the onus has to be on the parent and child for their lack of performance.

  • Why are the members of Strong Schools Strong Communities not included in the virtual town hall on Ohio’s Education Future? #OHEdu

  • @John Kasich How can Ohioans trust ALEC legislators with the future of our PUBLIC schools?#OHEdu
