So much for protecting the schools. Jennifer Granholm's budget suggests cutting school aid by $59/student. It's not chump change. There are over 16,000 students in the Ann Arbor schools. That's almost a million dollars! And she also proposes cutting funding to before- and after-school programs. If you want to protest, contact your state senators and representatives.
In other news: If you have ever needed some information from a governmental entity (and yes, that includes the schools), this post by Edward Vielmetti on how to FOIA documents might come in very handy. FOIA: That's the Freedom of Information Act. Protect your right to know.
