Kasich says Ohio school plan student-focused

Gov. John Kasich says his long-awaited education funding overhaul is focused on giving students an even chance to compete.

Kasich also says he believes the plan being announced later Thursday will pass constitutional muster. The Ohio Supreme Court has ruled that Ohio relied too much on property taxes, which can vary widely between rich and poor districts.

The Republican governor told a legislative preview organized for journalists by The Associated Press that the overhaul strips out politics and pushes funding dollars into the classrooms. He says students in every part of state should have the resources to compete, regardless of what kind of district they are in. He says that includes disabled students.

Kasich stopped short Thursday morning of disclosing any specifics about his plan.
