Kasich Proposes Faster, Cheaper Paths to College Education

Gov. John Kasich’s ideas for the next steps in higher-education policy continue the themes of recent years: helping Ohioans earn degrees and certificates faster, cheaper and with less time in the classroom.

John Carey, chancellor of the Ohio Department of Higher Education, outlined for a Lorain County audience on Monday Kasich’s higher-ed priorities for the mid-biennium budget review that legislators will consider this spring. The review bill, which has become a tradition in recent budget cycles, doesn’t include any new funding, but typically is stuffed with policy ideas, which will be hashed out for months by lawmakers.
