State Budget-Schools
(2008-07-17)
(wgvu) - - Michigan's K-12 public schools would get
between $56 and $112 more per pupil next budget year under a
proposal that soon will be voted on in the state Legislature.
A bipartisan panel of state lawmakers approved the proposed
school aid budget Thursday. The plan could come up for a vote in
the Senate later Thursday and in the House as early as next week.
The lowest-funded districts in the state would get the largest
per-pupil increase. Districts would get a minimum of $7,316 per
student for the fiscal year starting in October.
About $15 million would be allocated for Gov. Jennifer
Granholm's plan to help create smaller high schools in some
Michigan districts.
