Bad for students. Bad for higher education. Bad for Ohio.

Senate Bill 83, sponsored by Senator Jerry Cirino (R-Kirkland), was introduced on March 14, 2023. It is a sweeping piece of legislation that proposes an unprecedented level of political interference and micromanagement of Ohio’s colleges and universities.

Urge Legislators to Update and Fully Fund the Fair School Funding Plan

Urge your legislators to oppose voucher expansion

Several proposals in the Ohio legislature propose massive expansions in eligibility for school vouchers. Voucher programs use public taxpayer money to pay for private school tuition for students.
