  •  I live in one of the wealthier districts in MI (16+ / 0-)

    and parents have been invited to help the school board "set guidelines" for cutting at least $17 million from the district's budget for next year.
    This is a race to the bottom, all right. I shudder to think about the impact of the cuts on our district, but the districts that are worse off than ours--that is, most of them in the state--already have nothing "extra" to cut.
    The MI GOP is comprised of nothing but rapacious ghouls. On the state level they have already engineered more transfers from the poorer to the richer (taxes on pensions vs. tax cuts for businesses). We must fight back and win.

    Some DKos series & groups worth your while: Black Kos, Native American Netroots, KosAbility, Monday Night Cancer Club. If you'd like to join the Motor City Kossacks, send me a Kosmail.
