In the days since Governor John Kasich unveiled his new school funding proposal – and the projections of what each district would get under the new model – folks have been trying to make sense of it all.

That includes our partners at WOSU in Columbus and WCPN in Cleveland.

In his new plan, Kasich promised that no school will see a cut in their funding levels in this two-year budget. He also said wealthier districts would get less state support, while poorer districts would get more aid. But projections released recently show many districts often thought of as well-off are getting huge increases, while many districts considered to be poorer would see no increase in funding.
