Bloomfield Hills and West
Bloomfield.
Gov. Engler's plan calls for
districts spending less than
$4,500 per student to be
brought up to that level. Schools
spending between $4,500 and
$5,500 will be raised to the top
of that scale with an allowed 2
percent growth in the budget.
Schools spending between
$5,500 and $6,500 will be guar-
anteed a base grant of $6,500,
may levy an additional tax for
one year, and cap growth at 1
percent per year. Growth dol-
lars cannot be levied through
mill age.
"We're galvanizing a caste
system here. This is not equi-
table. It's keeping the inequities
in place," Ms. Nathan said.
Birmingham and Bloomfield
Hills schools currently spend
more than $9,000 a year on
each student. Gov . Engler's pro-
posed plan would allow 35 of
Michigan's wealthier districts
one transitional year to ap-
proach residents with a rnillage
or tax vote to pick up the dif-
ference between their founda-
tion grant and current spending
costs.
School choice is also facing
districts with good reputations.
Proposed is a system where
parents could choose their chil-
dren's public school. If children
can cross district lines has yet
to be determined. However,
foundation grant dollars would
follow each child to his or her
chosen school.
Questions range from "who
picks up the slack in the tran-
sition years for a student com-
ing from a
foundation-grant-only school to
one where voters have approved
a millage?" to "who decides the
standard for students, as better
schools will probably receive
more requests than they can ac-
commodate?"
"Right now we cannot man-
date cross-district choice.
Schools can choose to open up
their boundaries, but I don't
think they will," Ms. Nathan
said.
"I don't think choice is the
only way to empower parents."
All of the proposed changes
weigh heavily upon proposed
tax increases — varying in kind
from income to sales to business
to real estate to sin taxes.
In July, Michigan voters said
"no" to Proposal A, which would
have increased the sales tax to
6 percent. Somewhere, revenue
lost from a $6.5 billion proper-
ty tax cut needs to be made up.
"Twenty years ago, the state
made a 50 percent contribution
to education. It has dwindled to
34 percent. That threw off the
formula and districts had to
levy additional millages," Ms.
Nathan said. "This is the cri-
sis — the state reneging on its
commitment to kids." I]
