Ohio 2006 - Ackerman (D21st) calls for ban on state funding of charter schoools (OH has spent $444mil on charter schools)
"As your state representative, one of my first actions will be to introduce a bill to ban state funding of charter schools in the state of Ohio.” Ackerman continued, “Taxpayers in Ohio should not have to foot this enormous bill any longer. We are already funding public schools. Why do we have to pay for schools that operate for profit as well? Funding charter schools using public funds has recently been found by the courts in Florida to be wrong. Public funds must go to public education and only to public education.”
