A Question about Federal dollars and the structural deficit

During the last three school years, the School Aid Fund has been propped up with federal stimulus dollars and this year with the last of the stimulus dollars and with one time money coming from the Edu-jobs money which was a law that was passed this past August. These federal dollars are more than $350 of the approximately $7500 per pupil funding provided to each school district for every public school student. Next school year, the federal stimulus dollars will not be there. What are you going to do about this structural deficit that continues to plague Michigan schools?
