Health and education are areas of significant focus for Ohio policymakers, representing the largest shares of Ohio’s biennial budget for state fiscal years (SFY) 2016-2017.  Among the 971 bills introduced in the 131st General Assembly between Jan. 1, 2015 and Nov. 4, 2016, 42 percent were related to health and/or education. This brief provides an overview of the relationship between education and health.
