Polehanki issues statement on proposed education budget

LANSING — State Sen. Dayna Polehanki (D–Livonia) today issued the following statement on Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s budget proposal:

“For the last decade we have underfunded Michigan schools. As a teacher who spent 19 years in the classroom, I know firsthand the impact of underfunding our kids’ education. For too many years, we have had a cookie-cutter approach to school funding. Real investment in education will provide students with world-class K-12 programs, affordable options for college or access to career and technical training. This is an important step to restore Michigan as an educational leader.

“The governor’s education budget shows she is serious about creating paths to good-paying jobs. I look forward to taking a closer look at Gov. Whitmer’s proposal and helping finalize a budget that is right for our district.”

Sen. Polehanki serves as Democratic Vice Chair of the Senate Education and Career Readiness Committee.
