This funding issue far exceeds the term of Gov. Kasich. Let's debate the funding options... Many may not be any. Ore fair and viable than what currently exists. Easy to be critical but difficult to find a solution.

It won't be forgotten by me. My rent will go up for the second time in two years due to levies. Being a senior citizen on a fixed income, this is not good news. It's not just property owners who bear the burden. Trust me, it gets passed on. I may be getting a 1.5% increase in SS, but, it won't be nearly enough to keep up with the cost of living!

School funding was found unconstitutional in 1997 and jonetu blames the current governor? Look up DeRolph vs. State before making ignorant commentary that has no basis in fact. Despite this ruling the current funding method via property tax continues to be the law of the land since our reps don't have the guts to change it. I agree w/Fatboy, vote them out if they can't do the hard things that are right. Perhaps if term limits were in effect more reps would be willing to fall on the sword politically since there would be no fear of backlash from constituents.

What is sad also, is that in a weeks time this will all be forgoten. The fact that our state government refuses to fund the schools legally.This will be a major sticking point for me in the next election.Vote the bums out

“The levy's fate played out to a similar scenario Tuesday night. After all precincts were counted, the levy trailed by only 20 votes. But again, absentee voting was its downfall.” While you state that absentee voting is the downfall of the levy, it IS actually the NO vote of the majority.

It's sad what Gov. Kasich has done to our school's in Ohio. Without a levy there is no chance of being able to give students the all they deserve. Even more sad are those who don't care about the future of their communities.
