To improve Michigan’s schools we must reform state policies governing labor unions in public education. To help in this effort, the Mackinac Center’s Labor and Education Project offers advice and assistance to policymakers, school board members, school administrators and teachers as they grapple with a system of labor management designed for manufacturing industries in the mid-1930s.
This primer explains Michigan’s complex school-funding process. It is an indispensable resource for anyone interested in understanding Michigan school finances.
