Cleveland Heights – University Heights School Vouchers – Vote No on Issue 69

[LFC Comments: We are posting this article on behalf of Joe Miller and the other patriots in the Cleveland Heights – University Heights School District. Their property taxes are already among the highest in the State of Ohio.]

Vote NO on Issue 69

Talking points on School Vouchers and please Vote NO on Issue 69.

Do not play their game.  The Cleveland Heights – University Heights School district (or any school district for that matter) does not lose any money to Ed Choice Vouchers.  What they receive is LESS State money, but they do not lose any money! And what they receive is always very generous!

The State has a pie, the slice that the CH-UH School district receives will be smaller if more students choose Ed Choice Vouchers.  CH-UH does not lose money (as they repeatedly claim, no school system loses money) they receive LESS GRANT money.  Its all gratuitous from the State of Ohio.  It is a gift.  If you receive a smaller gift of money this year from the previous year, you can’t say we LOST money, because it is still a gift. And the gift amount varies from year to year based on a formula.

Please keep the voucher talking points simple.  Because they really are.  CH-UH receives State money based on a complicated formula (That we don’t need to talk about because it will only confuse voters) But this formula (which the School Union likes to cause confusion with) is the same formula for all school districts in Ohio. 

Basically, as more students choose vouchers the gift money to the public school is decreased.  Which also begs the question why is Scott Gainer (CFO  of Cleveland Heights-University Heights Schools) basing his budget on the absolute best case scenario for State money when he knows this gift amount varies from year to year. And currently is declining because more parents are choosing vouchers.

Also:  The recent CH-UH Reaching Heights School Article claims the loss is being covered 100% by Local Property Taxes.  Local Property taxes have nothing to do with Vouchers.  (Vouchers are gift money from the State)  But what the article is claiming is that since the State took money away from them; (which it didn’t they are just receiving less),  therefore our local property taxes must be used to compensate for this! 

Wow!  That is pure arrogance on the part of the Teacher’s Union.  Local property taxes to compensate not only for the smaller state gift, but for increased spending the school incurs every year.  Which is why they need another levy!  Which is why these levies will become endless until we stop them!

And finally:  Remember the parents who use these State Vouchers still GIVE their property tax money to the CH-UH School system.  Something else never mentioned.  Vote NO on Issue 69.  You would be crazy not to.

  16. Wow you really hit the nail on the head with this article. I am a Cleveland Heights resident and these levies have to stop. What the CH-UH school district needs is a good audit followed by some major budget cuts! Why do CH-UH teachers only pay 6% of their healthcare premiums, less than half the percentage Shaker Heights and Beachwood teachers pay? Why is the CH-UH average administrative salary $105,421, over $20,000 more than the Ohio statewide average of $83,223? Why does the Heights High sports facilities rival those of major college programs? Why is so much money being poured into unnecessary programs?
    I attended a private school growing up (here in the Heights) and our school grounds cannot even compare to that of the CH-UH public schools. And yet, the students of private schools here graduate at a much higher rate and achieve worlds more academically. The Ed Choice vouchers are a necessity to any middle-class family wanting to send their children to the private schools where they can succeed, instead of the failing CH-UH public schools. And, as noted in the article, families of children going to private schools still have to pay taxes that go toward the CH-UH public schools.
    I think we can all agree, a time like this, where so many people are hurting financially, is no time to pass more levies.
    Vote NO on Issue 69!
