Neutral. This bill was passed with an exemption for students who are homeschooled or who attend a non-chartered, non-tax-supported school. However, the bill still creates potential problems for home educators in Ohio and will likely increase taxes to pay for the additional resources needed to provide the services mandated by this bill. For example, the bill contains provisions requiring the legislature to make additional changes that would require, among other things, follow-up educational assessments for all high school students.
None at this time.
