Weeks past the June 30 deadline, Ohio's biennium budget has been adopted. It is one that, for the time being, pleases local school officials. For the most part, Eastern Ohio superintendents are happy with Gov. Ted Strickland's plan, one which does away with the much-discussed and locally opposed property tax funding method. It had been ruled unconstitutional by the Ohio Supreme Court. Local schools in Ohio have found themselves continually on the short end of the state educational funding totem pole. While bliss currently reigns in Eastern Ohio education circles, we only hope that such euphoria is not a flash in the pan. Our schools deserve to be placed on the same playing field -- when it comes to funding -- as big city school districts.
