The Cincinnati Public Schools and the Ohio School Facilities Commission are at odds over differing enrollment projections, which will determine how much the state will pay for new and refurbished school buildings.
The district hired Jeff Rexhausen, an associate director of research at the University of Cincinnati’s Economics Center, to make its enrollment projections. He claims the commission’s projections are too low. The reason? Rexhausen “factors in enrollment bumps when a new school building opens.”
What kind of economics are they teaching at the University of Cincinnati? Who knew you could reverse falling enrollment by building more schools? Does Detroit know about this?
