Democratic Gov. Ted Strickland announced a plan to fix the school funding issue. Democrats in the state legislature have hailed his recommendations for correcting decades of problems. However, the Ohio Republicans are doing nothing. For example, Republican Jim Hughes offered a law about urine collecting, but nothing about funding public education. (See Ann Fisher's commentary in the Dispatch about Hughes and the urine-fetish bill.)
Now another Ohio Republican has tried to slow down the process of correcting the funding issue.
State Rep. Seth Morgan filed a lawsuit against Gov. Ted Strickland in the Ohio Supreme Court on Monday.
Morgan, a Republican from Huber Heights, said he wants the governor's office to turn over all correspondence, including e-mails, regarding how the administration arrived at its new evidence-based school funding formula, 10TV's John Fortney reported....
Ohio Republicans have failed repeatedly to fix the problem. The Republicans need to stop their stupid antics and get something done. Ohio's school children are suffering and falling behind because of the Republican Party's lack of efforts for equitable public education funding. They need to provide leadership or get out of the way.
