“I applaud Gov. Whitmer for her commitment to the largest increase in school funding in over a generation of students. She has made it clear that her budget is about supporting Michigan’s long-term future, not just the next fiscal year. The proposed school aid budget takes the bold steps necessary to ensure that all Michigan students are once again made a priority, instead of an afterthought. When future generations look ahead in life, they should be able to count on the foundation of a high-quality education, ample career opportunities and the ability to build a successful life right here at home, and that’s exactly what the governor delivered.”
