Mackinac Center Current Comment :: 7 July 2008

<>< Josh Rule : : 2008 MCPP Intern

Today’s Current Comment at the Mackinac Center is actually a great article by Lorie Shane over at Michigan Education Report.  In it, Shane talks about the 24 school districts in Michigan who operated on a deficit for the 2007-2008 school year.  She looks at the consequences of the deficits – which could be as severe as a complete withdrawal of state funding – as well as the solutions – including the ‘lean thinking’ advocated by the Pawley Learning Institute at Oakland University.  The article only mentions, however, the districts currently projecting deficits for the 2008-2009 school year, which includes the projected $408M shortfall the Detroit Public Schools are predicting.  Check it out.
