Higher Education Funding Part Of Ohio Gov’s Agenda< < Back to
Ohio Gov. John Kasich says he's considering whether Ohio should tie college and university funding to graduation rates, rather than enrollment.
Kasich told reporters Wednesday that university presidents are expected to come to him by Thanksgiving with a new funding formula.
The Republican governor said changing how state subsidies to institutions are determined would be a part of legislative discussion next year.
Kasich said he also wants Ohio's community colleges and four-year universities to show incoming students what they can get for their education, similar to a menu. He said the lists would show what jobs are available in the state, what they pay, and what courses are needed to get the positions.
Kasich said such menus would give the state an advantage in getting students employed.
