The Ohio Department of Education just released school voucher usage data that show there are more than 31,000 Ohio students using a school voucher to attend the school of their choice this year.
This is at least 4,600 more vouchers than were used last year, which is the biggest usage jump in the history of Ohio school vouchers!
School Choice Ohio works to educate families on the education options available for their children, and we believe every child deserves to attend a great school that is a great fit. We are thrilled with the numbers released by the department because they show that more and more families across the state are becoming empowered to make the best choices for their children.
Let us put this into perspective for you. If Ohio’s more than 31,000 voucher students made up their own district, they would be the fourth largest district in the state behind Columbus, Cleveland and Cincinnati, but much larger than Akron, Toledo or Dayton.
We would like to say a big thank you to all the families, schools, ambassadors, stakeholders and school choice supporters who helped us spread the word here in Ohio about these great programs available for families.
School Choice Ohio is proud to have had a role in making these usage numbers a reality.
