Urge your Sen. to Oppose Voucher Provisions in the Sub. Budget Bill (HB 166)

The Senate’s substitute bill includes several provisions related to the EdChoice voucher program that serve to expand the eligibility, availability, and cost of vouchers.  OEA opposes these changes. OEA believes these funds would be better applied to the approximately 90% of students who attend Ohio’s local public schools.
