Canton schools join EdChoice lawsuit

Canton Repository |

The Canton City School District Board of Education on Monday voted to join or initiate a lawsuit against Ohio’s EdChoice program.

Earlier this year, Canton schools authorized the Ohio School Board Association to determine if the district and other public school districts had the grounds to sue, said Board Member Eric Resnick.

Canton will be part of a coalition of districts challenging the program. It will cost the district $2 per student — about $16,000 — to be part of the coalition.
