COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio Gov. John Kasich's long-awaited education funding overhaul is nearly here.

The Republican governor has scheduled a series of events Thursday to showcase the proposal.

The announcement is anticipated to kick off months of debate over the best direction for Ohio's public school system.

Kasich's plan is expected to contain a host of policy reforms including his attempt at resolving constitutional issues with the existing school-funding formula that assigns district-by-district subsidies.

Kasich has hinted at a variety of broad ideas including enhanced parental control, funding that follows the poorest children when they choose a different education option and monetary rewards for teachers whose students show measurable improvement.

Statehouse Democrats on Wednesday asked for a voice in the process that the governor has kept unusually quiet.
