New Legislation Boosts Charter Funding
More funding may become available for Michigan charter schools. The Associated Press reports that legislation heading to Governor Snyder’s desk would let the schools receive revenue from voter-approved tax hikes. The bill was approved in the Senate on Thursday. The taxes now go to the counties’ traditional school districts on a per-student basis, on top of their state funding. The legislation would let charter academies get a share of the extra local funding.
