Kasich, education leaders launch Ohio 'Straight A' fund

Published: Wed, September 11, 2013 @ 2:40 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — Gov. John Kasich has called upon Ohio educators to tap their creativity as the state makes available a new $250 million education innovation grant fund.

The Republican governor joined top state education officials today to launch the Straight A Fund included in Ohio’s two-year operating budget.

The program aims to reward creative ideas and programs that significantly boost student achievement, dramatically reduce spending or target an impressive share of resources into the classroom.

Joining Kasich at the inaugural meeting of the fund’s governing board were State Superintendent Dick Ross and Susan Zelman, a former state superintendent who’s serving as fund director.

Grants will go to traditional public schools, community schools, STEM schools, individual teachers and to educational consortia comprising multiple districts, universities, educational service centers or private entities.

Kasich knows he is trouble with teachers and other public employees in his re-election effort so the cynic he is, he wants to throw a bone to teachers so they'll forget about what he tried to do to them with SB5. Not to mention the continuing effort to destroy unions and collective bargaining in the state run by the same sycophants and enablers who support him. It won't work. Public employees won't forget SB5 and what a Koch Bros, ALEC controlled puppet Kasich really is, no matter how much money he throws at them.
