Where are the Education Cuts Going to Lead Us?

Below is a guest commentary by a retired Republican Michigan House Legislator describing how cuts to education will devastate our economy.  He remembers how schools were funded under Proposal A.

Below is a Democratic opinion on education cuts.

Below is the Sunday article about how few college educated adults we have in Michigan.  In the past, this didn't matter with regards to income level.  Up until the 1990's, we had above average income due to manufacturing jobs.  We now have below average incomes due to a lack of high paying jobs that do not require degrees as well as a shortage of jobs that do require degrees, resulting in our grads are leaving the state.  Charles Ballard (the MSU economist) has some suggestions at the end of the article.
