MEDINA, Ohio (AP) — Ohio Gov. John Kasich (KAY’-sik) has proposed using $10 million in state casino revenue to pay for an effort to bring together parents, communities, religious groups, businesses and others to support children’s education.
Kasich says teachers often tell him that parents need to be more involved in their children’s education and communities need to do more to support their schools.
Kasich says he agrees and announced the creation of his “Community Connectors” initiative Monday in his State of the State speech.
The governor said he will ask lawmakers to provide $10 million in casino licensing fees to support the effort and that the state will give communities $3 for every $1 they pitch in.
