Ohio schools are facing a $3.1 billion funding shortfall, yet Gov. John Kasich is inviting all of Ohio to the movies tonight.
Kasich is encouraging people to watch a pro-charter school movie tonight in an attempt to provide cover for his plan to divert $800 million out of our public schools. Kasich's plan is dangerous because Ohio's charter school system is poorly implemented. Many of our state's charter schools have poor performance and are managed by for-profit operators that don't always put students first.
Even more outrageous is his special guest, Michelle Rhee. She's currently at the center of a storm over a cheating controversy, in the school system she oversaw.
We've put together our own very, very short movie for you to watch this evening.
We hope you find it educational...
