Save Our Schools Rally in Lansing

The pressure is still on state lawmakers to find more money for Michigan education.

Students, parents, teachers and school administrators rallied at the state capitol in Lansing this morning.

The Associated Press says hundreds of people showed up.

And Governor Jennifer Granholm headed to downstate Mason late this afternoon.

It’s for another one of her round-table talks with educators about school funding cuts.

K-12 funding will be cut $127 per student next month.

That is, unless the state legislature agrees to either raise taxes or set aside more of the existing tax money for education.

That would be on top of the $165 cut per student signed into law a couple of weeks ago.

It was in a school budget bill for fiscal 2010.
