Whitmer’s education budget offers the support our students need

A budget defines priorities.

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s K-12 budget tells Michiganders and Detroiters that they believe in public education, the children and families who access it, and the employees who serve those children and families.

We have all grown tired of elected officials, and those who aspire to elected office, offer endless platitudes about supporting public education, while underfunding it.

Gov. Whitmer does not just talk about the importance of public education. Her budget affirms that commitment. In fact, each of her proposed budgets has been called upon to increase student funding for four years, and narrowing down the positive movement between the state and local funded equity gaps with school districts with wealthy local tax bases and those that are limited.
