New Budget Proposal for Schools

Superintendents, school leaders, parents and other public school advocates across Michigan have unveiled the “Classrooms and Kids” budget proposal that places an emphasis on putting resources into the classroom. Backers say the proposal provides $250-$291 per pupil by eliminating $186 million in line-item spending that benefits a limited number of students. The “Classrooms and Kids” budget restores funds to schools using only existing resources and without raising taxes. More than a dozen educational organizations jointly called on the legislature to adopt the alternative budget. The “Classrooms and Kids” budget also has the support of teachers, school staff and parents.
