BREAKING NEWS: Michigan's Governor Opposes Public Money Going To Non-Public Schools

Dec 6, 2019

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer

Governor Gretchen Whitmer says no public money should go to private or parochial schools --  even for the costs of complying with state mandates. 

The governor and the state schools superintendent filed a brief today with the Michigan Supreme Court.

They agree with a challenge that says the funding violates the state constitution's ban on public money going directly or indirectly to non-public schools. The only exception is to pay for transporting students.
