Comparing State funding with School Performance

While it is not all about the money, this article shows that states with highly funded schools have some of the best schools.  We need to remember this when the "choice" options in Michigan drain money from our districts.  Remember that Michigan has lost funding over the last 7 years.  We are currently funded at the same level as 2006.  School expenses (including teacher retirement) have only gotten higher since then, just like your household expenses.
