Michigan - SJRA

Protects the School Aid Fund

Introduced

January 13, 2021

Description

This resolution would clarify in the Michigan constitution that the school aid fund is only to fund k-12 public schools and not community colleges or higher education.

Commentary

MASB supports this resolution.  Over the past several years, the state has syphoned off money from the school aid fund to cover the cost of funding community colleges and four year universities. This has to led to years of underfunding our public schools.   We do not believe this was the original intent of the law and this constitutional amendment will ensure that all revenue in the school aid fund goes to k-12 education.
