Ohio Lawmaker Seeks Tax Break for Those Who Homeschool

A state lawmaker in Ohio hopes to provide a tax break to property owners who homeschool their children instead of sending them to public school.

Sen. Kris Jordan of Ostrander in central Ohio says that his bill would reduce property taxes for parents who homeschool their children by an amount equal to what they pay for school levies in their local school districts. Jordan also says that the legislation would help those who sacrifice to homeschool a child.

Opponents to the proposal argue that the measure could lead to more tax breaks at the expense of public education.
