School Choice:
Investing in Ohio's Children & Future Workforce

Fully & Fairly Funding Public Schools

Ohio parents deserve a choice in their child’s education. That’s why Ohio House Republicans supported landmark changes to Ohio’s school choice vouchers. A universal voucher program gives parents the power to choose the best education for their child, regardless of their zip code.

Ohio’s 2023 budget invests over $16 billion in primary and secondary education. The future of our state depends on the education of our children, so no school district should feel inadequate. 

School choice gives parents the power to choose the school that best meets their child’s individual needs. This could be a public school, a private school, a charter school, or even a homeschool. When parents have more options, their children have a better chance of getting a quality education.

Importance Of Career-Tech Schools in Ohio

Ohio’s skilled tradespeople are the backbone of the Buckeye State. That’s why we invested $300 million in career-tech facilities to amplify the industries that will build the future of our state.

Career tech schools provide students with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in in-demand careers. The skills and knowledge that students learn in career tech schools are often directly applicable to the workforce, which can help them get a good job right out of high school.

Career tech schools help students connect with employers. Many career tech schools have partnerships with local businesses and industries, which can help students get internships and job shadowing opportunities. These opportunities can help students learn more about different career paths and make connections with potential employers.

As the Ohio continues to grow and develop, career tech schools will play an increasingly important role in preparing students for the jobs of the future.

We want Ohioans to stay in Ohio, so we supported a merit scholarship for the top 5% of every Ohio high school graduating class. This scholarship will give them the opportunity to attend an Ohio university, ensuring that our brightest minds stay in the state.
