Does the State Board of Education in Michigan have the answer?
May 12, 2010
LANSING -- With hopes of influencing public school funding and spending reforms, the state Board of Education on Tuesday unanimously approved a broad, long-range plan for education that includes large tax increases to pay for greatly expanded preschool, state-paid college tuition and spending reductions.
Public schools in Michigan are struggling because of a lack of money.
The Michigan Board of Education in a newly-adopted policy says taxes need to be increased dramatically to beef up public schools.
They are also advocating for universal pre-schools and free college in the state.
Is this the answer to Michigan's problems? More taxes?
