Description

The Beacon Journal examines the issue of school choice by investigating the problems in Ohio's public and private academies. "Ohio, already No. 1 in the '90s for putting public dollars into private schools and last in the nation for placing children in safe and sanitary buildings, is on course to earn a new distinction in the next decade. The state is ready to rival Arizona, California, Florida and Michigan for funneling tax dollars to a new class of schools -- charter schools -- that are public in some ways and private in others." Among the topics the four-part series covers is school safety, the role of money and politics in schools and the problems with Ohio's school voucher system experiment.
