“Since coming to Lansing, I have been committed to supporting our students and hardworking teachers in our community. By dedicating record funding for education, expanding opportunities for preschool and early childhood education, increasing resources for at-risk and special education, cancelling school lunch debts and securing funds to create the MI Reconnect program I’ve championed since early last year, Gov. Whitmer’s proposed executive budget makes it clear that she shares that same priority. Our state’s future success depends on the actions we take today to equip our students with the skills they need, and I believe this budget puts Michigan on the right path.”
