(Studio) When parents can't afford higher property taxes and vote them down, it votes down education money for children; such has happened in Ohio.
REPORTER: John Chancellor

(Magnetic Springs, Ohio) Report on closing of schools in Ohio's North Union school district because voters have refused to vote higher property taxes. Neither homeowners nor farmers will vote for increase [Bertha ANDREWS - says people who don't own property should pay for children's education, too.] Parents raise money to reopen schools for 10 days, but teachers say that would do more harm than good. [School board spokesperson Gene WILEY - says children and staff are being treated like yo-yo on string.] [Student Melinda FOOS - says she doesn't want to see school go down; says spirit also getting lower.] Uncertainty with regard to future of schools here noted.
