<p>Hi folks,</p>
<p><br>
</p>
<p>Our dean's office sent this out. There is an Ohio bill that is being sponsored and considered that would tax GA stipends as if they were earned income. See below about how it would impact you.</p>
<p><br>
</p>
<p>If this frustrates or outrages you, then please take some action--phone calls, texts, faxes, etc., and/or organize a protest, etc. At the bottom of the email there are links and steps you can take as well.</p>
<p><br>
</p>
<p>The lack of support for public education whether it be K-12 or Higher Education by these legislatures is appalling. Of course, it is premised on the idea that a democracy is stronger with well-educated citizens...but we also know that an authoritarian banking
 style of education serves to keep power (and other human goods) unequally distributed in order to benefit the few and uphold the status quo.</p>
