The originally proposed budget increase to the foundational allowance for charter school students of $240 per student was vetoed Oct. 1 by Gretchen Whitmer. All other traditional public schools received an increase, that’s not equitable. Why? To leverage broader state budget conversations with the legislature. It’s political.
This hurts our kids, our educators and our classrooms, it undermines our voices, our work and the success we drive every day for Michigan learners - and clearly puts the needs of the bureaucracy above the needs of 150,000+ students who attend charter schools across the state.
Tell the Governor and your lawmakers that your funding isn’t up for grabs - today, or any other day.
School funding must put the needs of our children first, not the interests of politicians and bureaucracy!
