Thank you for taking the time to contact your legislator about funding all kids equally in Michigan. Your outreach and that of over 1,000 fellow charter school supporters have paid off! The legislature finished work and the Governor signed the school aid budget June 14, 2017. The budget included twice the funding increase for charter schools, which are always at the lowest end of the state funding, as it does for schools at the high end. Take a few seconds to tell your lawmaker that you are thankful for the work that was done this year. It is also important to let your lawmaker know that this work isn’t complete and you will be watching to make sure they continue closing the equity gap.
