From Willam Phillis, Ohio E & A, Friday, August, 15, 2014.
In school year 2013-2014, nearly one-half billion dollars in local
levy funds went to the Ohio charter school industry

In school year 2013-2014, Ohio school districts had $896,440,955
deducted from their budgets for 121,825 charter school students over
which elected boards of education had no governance regarding their
curriculum, programs, services, academic ratings, graduation rates,
etc. The charter school industry is a publicly-funded, private school

School districts received $466,918,677 from the state for these
121,825 students and paid out $896,440,955; hence, the difference of
$429,522,278 came from local tax levies. State officials have, in
vain, attempted to convince the public that charterville funding is
state money only.

588 Ohio school districts (96%) receive less total state calculated
per pupil funding than they pay out per pupil to charter schools. On
the average, school districts receive $3832.70 per pupil in total
calculated state funding and pay out $7358.43 per charter school

School district levies must be used in accordance with the
stipulation of items indicated in the board-adopted resolution. Since
support for charter schools is not one of the stipulated items, local
tax funds should be disallowed for charter school students. Only the
state money a district receives should be transferred to charterville.

This is an issue that needs to be litigated.
