Gov. Ted Strickland, the Democratic governor of Ohio, vetoed a bill last year that would have authorized a special education voucher program similar to one already in the state for students with autism.
But a new bill that mirrors the vetoed legislation is back and making its way through the Ohio legislature.
Instead of being open just to students with autism, it would be available to all special education students. Strickland has promised to veto the bill again if it comes back to his desk. The bill is scheduled to be up for a full vote sometime this fall. In the meantime, you can check out an article I wrote earlier this year about a public-policy group’s critical analysis of the Ohio autism voucher program.
