Increased school funding gets Miller’s vote

State Rep. Aaron Miller on Tuesday voted to increase the state’s allocation for each individual student by $100 as part of a $14.3 billion education budget.
Miller, who said Michigan’s future is based on its students and classrooms, is a member of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on School Aid.
Miller said his endorsement will hopefully lead to kids being proficient in reading, having better career and technical education programming, and better educational opportunities than a year ago.
Key items in the approved education budget include increases in K-12 education funding to the highest ever in state history, the addition of $100 more funding per-pupil, and increases funding for career and technical education programs to $37.6 million.
The budget also prioritizes early-childhood literacy with $25.4 million dedicated to added instruction time, increased work with literacy coaches and in-classroom screenings to help K-3 students.
