Our Michigan personal injury lawyers came across an interesting proposal from Nathan Bootz, the Superintendent of Ithaca Public Schools about financial cuts in spending for social services and public education. His proposal was to make his schools more like a prison - meaning equal funding for both the student and the prisoner.
Based upon his proposal, we created an infographic to visually display the difference between benefits of students in our Michigan school systems vs. prisoners in the State of Michigan. You may find this infographic very interesting. Feel free to share this infographic with others whether it's a parent, teacher, family, or friend by:

Superintendent Bootz claims "the State of Michigan spends annually somewhere between $30,000 - $40,000 per prisoner, yet we are struggling to provide schools with $7,000 per student." He also writes, adequately funding schools would give them "the resources necessary to keep our students out of prison."
Cuts have been made to school spending, but prison spending has also been cut in the budget in the Michigan legislature approved in May. However, proportinately it was half the cut inflicted on public schools.
What is your opinion? Is Michigan making the correct cuts in spending for social services, public education, and prisons?
