The ongoing debate over Ohio's teacher pension fund

Mche Lee

Ohio’s State Teachers Retirement System controls $90 billion invested on behalf of 500,000 active and retired teachers. But there is a debate among members over actively managed funds verses an index fund.

Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost has launched an investigation into several STRS board members, and now one board member — known as one of the “reformers” — has resigned.

Amid the upheaval we examine how the state’s teacher pension fund is managed.
