Governor’s budget embraces equity and protects school funding
LANSING – The Michigan Association of Superintendents & Administrators (MASA) today announced its support for Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s 2020 budget proposal, which includes a $507 million investment in public school resources to improve every classroom statewide so that every child has the chance to succeed.
“Gov. Whitmer’s budget proposal represents a dramatic shift in thinking and embraces the findings of the School Finance Research Collaborative,” said Chris Wigent, MASA executive director. “MASA is proud to support the governor’s school funding plan, which embraces funding equity, defines real solutions for protecting the School Aid Fund and reflects the removal of higher education from the fund.”
