STATE BUDGET-SCHOOLS
(2008-07-18)
(wgvu) - The state Senate has approved giving
Michigan's K-12 public schools an additional 56 to 112 dollars per
pupil in the next budget year.
A bipartisan panel of lawmakers approved the proposed school aid
budget that cleared the Senate yesterday on a 31-4 vote. The plan
could come up in the House as early as next week.
Michigan's lowest-funded districts would get the largest
per-pupil increase. Districts would get a minimum of 7,316 dollars
per student for the fiscal year starting in October.
The per-pupil increases of less than 2 percent won't cover
inflation, and probably won't head off more cuts in some districts'
budgets.
The Legislature has already approved most of the coming fiscal
year's budget.
