2009 Senate Bill 252: Authorize one-month “continuation” school aid budget (Senate Roll Call 506)
facebook  twitter 

Passed 21 to 15 in the Senate on October 1, 2009, to make appropriations for a one-month “interim” school aid budget for the fiscal year that begins on Oct. 1, 2009. This rejects the higher spending level approved by the House, and restores the $218 per pupil cut spending rate previously passed by the Senate.

 I agree.  Public schools are a dismal failure.  Cut our taxes and let us pay for our own children's' education.  Subsidize tuition for low income parents.

A death sentence to Michigan K-12 schools would be the best thing to happen. Get rid of them and the powerful and greedy MEA and start from scratch. Our public schools are a massive failure and a HUGE drain on Michigans budget and more importantly what's left of Michigans hard working tax payers.
