State School Aid Budget Expected To Increase

The past few years have been years of subtraction for Michigan schools, as school funding has declined each year, sometimes compounded by cuts in the middle of the year.

However, this next year, money will be added to Michigan’s school budgets from several important sources, hopefully leading to higher achievement. Recent legislation will provide for more funding to prevent teacher layoffs in Michigan, a total of $79 billion nationwide.

At the I3 competition, two groups winning money will invest in Michigan – Reading Recovery and Dropout Prevention – over the next five years.  And the state school aid budget is also predicted to increase next year for school districts.
