Michigan School Finance Under Proposal a: State Control, Local Consequences
Posted: 11 Mar 2004
The authors look at the impact on Michigan's public school system of Proposal A, a 1994 ballot measure that shifted school funding from the property tax to the sales tax. Proposal A has led to a significant reduction in property taxes, while simultaneously reducing inequities in the resources provided for Michigan public schools; however, a growing number of school districts have experienced revenue losses, the authors say.
