State of Ohio Flexes Their Muscles on School Levies..we call out the deception

(LFC Comments: There are rules and regulations that school boards and administrators must follow when they are trying to convince the voters to vote for their levy.  Here is an article that purports to shed some light on the “do’s and don’ts” when promoting a levy.)

Some excerpts from the article:

“Republican Auditor Keith Faber says public school districts must make sure their campaign efforts are separate from their operations.

“And that means you can’t use staff time, you can’t use equipment, you can’t use mailings, email accounts, property for signs, all of those things that we see fairly regularly, Faber says.

Faber says his office gets regular complaints on infractions like these. And he says, most times, schools do it inadvertently. But he says when it happens, it’s wrong. And he wants the public and school officials to be aware of the line so they don’t step over it in the process of selling a school levy to voters.”

(LFC Opinion:  Our experience with the various State offices is that they will eventually say that they have no jurisdiction on anything since Ohio is a home rule state.  So this is really all a show to make the average citizens think that the State officials have their back – so you vote for them when you see their name on the next ballot because they really care about you.

We guess that it is still permissible to use taxpayer money to pay for lobbyists that whisper in the ears of the State legislators and State school board members.

How many school teachers tell their students in class to tell their parents to vote for the levy or there will be dire consequences for the students?


What will happen to the school that violates the rules?  Hmmm, perhaps a time out is in order, maybe even a harsh word will be spoken, and finally a letter of reprimand reminding them not to do it again. Pardon us if we appear cynical, but it is all a grand deception!)
