“Seeking Adequate Funding for Michigan K-12 Schools”

Posted by waddelk on February 12, 2018 in Class News |

A Panel Discussion featuring
Regional Superintendents
Michigan Legislators

This discussion will focus on –
Can we reverse the academic decline in Michigan’s schools
without addressing the funding issue?

A recent report released by the US Department of Education notes
that Michigan increased spending on prisons more than five times
faster than it did on public education from 1979-2013. Meanwhile,
Michigan school performance continues to fall further behind. At the
current rate of decline, our state will rank 48th by 2030.


Panelists will discuss the report’s implications for Michigan’s
children. After a presentation from the panelists, the audience will
have an opportunity to pose questions to the panelists.

The Panel moderator will be Alicia Nails, Director of the Journalism
Institute for Media Diversity at Wayne State University.
