Phil will fight for quality education for all students
Phil believes that a child’s zip code should not dictate their destiny, and that every child deserves a high-quality education. Phil is deeply committed to improving and investing in Ohio schools. Also, Phil is focused on ensuring
that universities, community colleges, and trade and technical programs are more affordable.
As a state representative and ranking member on the Primary and Secondary Education committee, Phil worked to expand access to quality education for all Ohio students. Phil supported the 2019 state budget that made the largest investment in K-12 education in recent history, including a $625 million increase for wraparound care services.
Phil voted to create new graduation requirements, providing more pathways to a diploma, in addition to standardized testing. He worked to pass legislation to raise teacher salaries and provide a $250 deduction for out-of-pocket work-related expenses for teachers.
Phil also co-sponsored legislation to overhaul Ohio’s public school funding formula, which the Ohio Supreme Court has ruled four different times to be unconstitutional.
Phil understands how important access and opportunity are when it comes to education.
If re-elected, Phil Robinson will continue to work to:
Fix Ohio’s unconstitutional public school funding model
Lower the cost of college, making it accessible and affordable for everyone
Expand kindergarten to full day throughout the state
Invest in early childhood education,
including universal Pre-K for all three- and four-year-old children
Ensure that every family has the opportunity to receive a high quality K-12 education no matter their zip code, socioeconomic status, or race
