Governor’s Early College Plan Draws Mixed Reviews
Educators are both applauding and raising questions about Governor Strickland’s proposal to offer eligible high schoolers free tuition to spend their senior year at college,picking up their high school diplomas and a year of college credit at the same time.
The plan would enable seniors at Ohio public high schools to take classes at two- or four-year Ohio public colleges instead of their high schools.
Thomas Lasley, dean of the University of Dayton’s School of Education and Allied Professions, says the proposal will likely increase the chances of success for all students. But he questions how the funding will work.
Strickland says the tuition will be paid by combining the student’s state subsidies from high school funding and the subsidy for college.
