Upper Arlington joins VHO lawsuit

June 18, 2024

The board of education for Upper Arlington City Schools voted last week to join our Vouchers Hurt Ohio lawsuit.

This is a historic moment, as Upper Arlington board member Nidhi Satiani noted before voting yes.

Satiani pointed out that Upper Arlington was among a group of wealthy districts in Ohio that did not join the historic DeRolph case in the ‘90s that challenged the constitutionality of the public school funding program in Ohio and won.

Satiani said Upper Arlington needed to be on the right side of history.

Here is an impressive report on last week’s vote in Upper Arlington on The Spectrum, a public affairs program that airs on WCMH Channel 4 in Columbus that is hosted by Colleen Marshall.

Marshall points out that Lt. Gov. Jon Husted fed false and misleading information to the Upper Arlington school board prior to the vote in an attempt to stop the district from joining our lawsuit.

Later in the program, Marshall has two political strategists on to discuss the different viewpoints on the private school voucher program.

When Mehek Cooke tries to use the same lies and falsehoods that Husted attempted to peddle, Marshall shuts it down. This show airs on NBC and it is must see TV.
