SCHOOL page 1

from 4.6 to 6 percent will take
effect if the propsal is rejected.
Core curricula, mandating
what schools must teach for ac-
creditation, and longer school
days passed along with charter
schools. Cross-district choice
and sixth-grade reading test-
ing, quizzing proficiency to
reach the seventh grade, didn't
make the mark.
Most agree quality issues
won't have much effect in
Oakland County. The money
question should keep Birming-
ham, Bloomfield Hills, West
Bloomfield and Southfield vot-
ers alert.
Foundation grants, a mini-
mum and maximum grant per
year per pupil — focused on eq-
uity — should, in theory, allow
Oakland County schools to
maintain their current stan-
dards.
But Mindy Nathan, Bloom-
field Hills school board mem-
ber, is already reading between
the lines.
"I don't know what the ex-
act numbers are yet, so Pm hop-
ing for the best," Ms. Nathan
said. "Lansing says we'll be held
harmless — we'll be given the
same expenditures per child in
this district next year as we re-
ceived this year."
She added, "Either tax plan
is going to hit Oakland County
hard, though."
While Ms. Nathan is confi-
dent Bloomfield Hills voters
won't let the standards of their
institutions slip, she remains
concerned about restrictions
put on the district to levy addi-
tional mils.
Growing costs, she said, will
force wealthier districts like
Bloomfield Hills to level off .
"Bloomfield Hills, Birming-
ham, West Bloomfield — we
never funded schools at the ex-
pense of anyone else. We fund-
ed through the property tax. So
the idea that we have been
spending other districts' right-
ful dollars is erroneous," Ms.
Nathan said.

"The state will
have to use its
power wisely."

Kathleen Strauss

Ms. Strauss added, "It will
be interesting to see how this is
all defined and implemented
once the schools see the small
print.
"On the quality side, it's
not so different from what
we're doing now. It's about fi-
nance. Many districts are
pleased to be exiting the
millage business, but some feel
such votes gave them a voice.
It's a loss of local control and a
shift to Lansing. The state
will have to use its power
wisely." ❑
