Corporate Greed Over Kids' Needs
Many of our state legislators voted for SB 619, which gives for-profit cyber school companies the full per-pupil allowance -about $7,000 per student! These corporations would take dollars out of public school classrooms even though they provide no buildings, no buses, no meals, no athletics, no arts, no band, no special education - all those things we expect from quality public schools.
Our kids' education shouldn't be compromised by another Lansing special-interest power grab.
Our schools' resources shouldn't be squandered on unproven cyber schools with little or no public accountability.
Our politicians should support our public schools, not bankrupt them by giving away taxpayer-funded education funds. Please take a moment to send an e-mail to members of the Michigan House of Representatives now!
