Most vocational schools would lose funding under Kasich proposal

Like Ohio's libraries and K-12 school districts, vocational schools soon could be feeling the squeeze of Ohio's tightening purse strings.  Of the state's 49 career-technical schools, 35 would receive less state funding next year under Gov. John Kasich's proposed 2018-19 budget. That includes Tolles in Plain City, Tri-Rivers in Marion, C-TEC in Newark and Eastland-Fairfield schools in Groveport and Carroll.  The funding loss in most cases is caused by a drop in students, according to the state Office of Management and Budget.
