State of the State: Education
I've been holding my breath, wondering what Gov. Jennifer Granholm would be proposing around the education budget. Tonight's speech was long on support for education, but short on specifics. School budgets are mostly fixed costs--buildings, teaching and support staff, etc. The state budget proposal comes next week. I'm hoping that per-pupil allocations are not cut, but given the state of the economy, until then, I guess I won't breath any sighs of relief...or anguish.
