STATE BUDGET-SCHOOLS
(2008-03-27)
(wgvu) - THE STATE SENATE HAS PASSED A SPENDING
PLAN FOR K-12 PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
SCHOOLS WOULD GET AN EXTRA 71 TO 142 DOLLARS PER STUDENT, WITH
LOWER-FUNDED DISTRICTS GETTING MORE AND HIGHER-FUNDED SCHOOLS
GETTING A LOWER INCREASE.
GOVERNOR GRANHOLM PROPOSES INCREASING STATE AID BETWEEN 108 AND
216 DOLLARS PER STUDENT. BUT THE REPUBLICAN-CONTROLLED SENATE IS
WORRIED TAX REVENUES WILL COME IN LOWER THAN EXPECTED.
THE K-12 BUDGET BILL HEADS TO THE DEMOCRATIC-LED HOUSE.
ALSO YESTERDAY, THE SENATE REJECTED DEMOCRATS' ATTEMPTS TO
CREATE SMALL HIGH SCHOOLS IN DISTRICTS WITH FAILING STUDENTS.
SENATORS INSTEAD SUPPORTED GIVING EVERY DISTRICT ANOTHER 20 DOLLARS
PER STUDENT TO SPEND ON BUILDINGS.
