Lansing Report: State Looks at School Aid Rewrite
If you’ve been following the news, you know that there’s a lot happening in Lansing right now regarding public education in the state – most notably a rewrite of the state’s school-aid legislation.
The proposed changes will greatly impact charter schools, and MAPSA is closely monitoring and participating in the process in Lansing. For the most part, the proposals are positive for charter schools. You’ll find an excellent analysis of the proposed rewrite, and links to the full package here.
