Study: Michigan ranks last in school funding growth

From the Associated Press and posted by our media partner at WOOD TV:

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — No other state tightened its education spending more than Michigan did over a 20-year period, according to a newly released study.

Michigan State University said Wednesday that the state ranked dead last in total education revenue growth between 1995 and 2015. After adjusting for inflation, school revenue was 82 percent of what it was in 1995, after the passage of an education-finance overhaul. No other state was "close to a decline of this magnitude," the research says.
