Mike Kallmeyer speaks with Scott DiMauro, president of the Ohio Education Association, to discuss how the Backpack Bill would impact public schools. DiMauro said the bill would take necessary funding away from public schools in Ohio.

“Diverting public funds to government subsidies, to families who choose to send their kids to private schools is not only unconstitutional, but it also does a disservice to the 90% of Ohio children who attend our public schools,” he said.

DiMauro said he believes that the bill would create a dramatic shift, putting the burden of funding public schools on local property owners.
