According to the Cleveland Metropolitan School District, here is is what voters stand to lose or gain pending the outcome of the vote on Issue 107:

It will replace failing schools with new, high quality schools.
It will increase graduation rates in every neighborhood.
It makes sure all graduates re ready for college, career and work.
It will will mean longer school days, more up to date books and technology.

More cuts will lead to sports, and after-school activities being eliminated.
More cuts will lead to shorter school days, students will be out earlier in the day.
More cuts will lead to bigger classrooms, less time for individual learning.
