Public school funding is a major portion of every state budget.

And the new spending plan is no exception.

Ohio's two-year budget includes an additional $1.5-billion for schools, with an eye toward giving the most to districts with the greatest need.

Lt. Governor Mary Taylor says the budget is aligned to consider the wealth of a school district, the amount of local property taxes paid to schools, and the educational needs of its students.  

Taylor tells us about spending for higher education on Thursday's Newswatch.
