Michigan Education Finance Act of 2013

August 5, 2012

In July, Governor Synder’s Office distributed a memo highlighting the start of a process that will review the School Aid Act of 1979 and make changes that will result in what is being called the Michigan Education Finance Act of 2013.

At various points in the last 12 months Governor Synder has indicated his interest in reforming the current public education system.  He April he stated,

“Michigan’s education system must be reshaped so that all students learn at high levels and are fully prepared to enter the work force or attend college.”

The review timeline call for research and drafting over the next two months with a Statewide conference in October to review the draft bill.  The Governor’s Office has reached out to key education groups to have a seat at the table the drafting begins.  It will be interesting to see the early drafts.  I encourage you to stay informed, as this new bill could have a significant impact on the future of public education in Michigan.
