New School Voucher System Discussed In Capitol

Participation in Ohio’s voucher system, that pays for eligible public school students to attend private schools, would be based purely on family income in the future, not school performance, under a plan unveiled by House lawmakers. Under current law, Ohio’s EdChoice program provides private school tuition for students at public schools that fail to meet certain state performance guidelines. The House plan would create the Buckeye Scholarship Opportunity program, and students from families making up to 250% of federal poverty guidelines would be eligible for those payments.
