Sad Day

Well, it's a sad day for Washtenaw County schools. Even though the millage was not "the" solution to the financial stresses in the county schools, it was a part.

The other part is getting the state legislature to restore funding to the school aid fund.

I will have more thoughts, later. What are your thoughts?


  1. It was always an uphill battle, particularly in this economy. Doesn't really alleviate the feeling of getting kicked in the gut, though.

    I'm grateful for the many volunteers who worked their butts off to try and pass this thing. I'm sure that they/we will continue to work for improvements.

    Time to collect the yard signs.

  2. I would love to hear what you think the next step should be--I know a number of people who want to "raise hell" at the state level now that the millage failed, but since we don't completely understand why our schools are so poorly funded, we don't know what specifically we should be demanding. Have you come across any particular legislative solutions?
