On Friday we warned you not to pay too much attention to the day’s headlines about John Kasich’s school funding plans.

After his song-and-dance on Thursday, reporters had too little information and too little time to research what they’d been given, so they ran stories about what Kasich said at his town hall.

Headlines like “Kasich’s plan gives more money to schools” were abundant.

What a difference a few days makes.

After spending a little time digesting and digging into what are still very high-level plans from Kasich, questions and concerns are already surfacing.

Today’s headlines were noticeably different:

The Cleveland Plain Dealer
Gov. John Kasich’s school funding plan might hold little new money for many Northeast Ohio districts

The Dayton Daily News
Public schools would incur some cost of voucher expansion  and  Ohio schools: casino taxes don’t make up for cuts

The Columbus Dispatch
Incentives plan raises questions and School funding details: public must wait

Plain Dealer subscribers woke up to this on their front porch today:


Not exactly the Sunday morning Kasich was hoping for.

  • And does this surprise anyone? really just remember who not to vote for ever!

  • Never ever!! In the Dispatch of Feb. 2nd, Kasich (http://tinyurl.com/awjztp6) said that he thought that “highly-qualified” teachers could handle teaching 2-3 classes at the same time, and then eliminate teaching jobs. Obviously, John Kasich’s cushy teaching job at Ohio State did NOT provide him any insight about teaching.

  • What a Kashole

    Well look at his resume then decide if this chump is capable of making any sound judgements about ANYTHING let alone public education.

    And of course that doesn’t even begin to touch on more levies and property tax increases, which in my community have already been staggering with a doubling of that increase possible for this fall. If that happens, that means my Kasich tax increase will be more than the total amount I pay in state income taxes. Thanks, Taxin’ John.
