Ignoring Reality: Hiding their collective heads in the public trough

The Ohio School Boards Association (OSBA) shills for the educationists. In a real "let them eat cake" moment, OSBA presents "Recent Trends in K-12 Education Funding In Ohio," where Dr. Howard Fleeter of the Education Tax Policy Institute reveals a bleak future for Ohio workers (note pages 21 - 23). The figures (from the OBM and Taxation) show data for all workers, those in both government and the private sector.

What goes unmentioned is that public school employees in districts like Olentangy can still expect average wages increases of over 6% over the near future -- and likely into the distant future as well.

Wade-O still claims he "will do the right thing ... for our taxpayers.” Please.
