Education Spending Has Never Recovered

Aug 5, 2013

Michigan’s Governor Snyder says education funding has increased under his watch. This is a lie.

He fails to mention the ONE BILLION DOLLAR CUT to education funding he pushed through in his first year in office. At the rate he has been “increasing” education spending over the last three years, it will take until 2021 before funding might FINALLY crawl back up to the level it HAD been at when Snyder first took office!

No wonder 20 percent of the state’s public school districts are in deficit!
