New proposal: Ohio funding tied to student grad rates



Published: Fri, November 30, 2012 @ 2:40 p.m.

COLUMBUS — Student graduation rates would have greater weight when determining state funding for Ohio’s public colleges and universities, under a first-of-its-kind framework unveiled by Gov. John Kasich’s administration.

The proposed policy changes were developed by a group of university and college presidents, headed by Ohio State University’s Gordon Gee and Zane State College’s Paul Brown, after Kasich asked the different campuses to work together for the common good.

“There is no one else in this country doing what we’re doing right now,” Gee said, adding later, “There was collective sacrifice for the common good.”

Brown added, “We’re doing this in a way that’s going to set the bar for the rest of the country.”
