Superintendents Want Budget Re-Write

A group of school superintendents gathered at the Michigan Capitol Tuesday, to ask lawmakers to come back to Lansing from their summer break, to rewrite Michigan’s K-12 budget. They say the version approved last month was not fair to many schools. Specifically they say the plan increases aid by as little as 50-dollars per pupil in some districts, which is not enough even to offset increases in payments toward school employee retirement. At the same time, other districts got 175-dollars per pupil. At least 125 out of the state’s more than 800 districts got the smaller amount.
