An Update of Educational Reform in Michigan. Technical Report.
Michigan State Office of Planning Coordination, Lansing.
In October 1970, the Governor's Commission on Educational Reform issued a report recommending changes in the administrative and financial structures of Michigan elementary and secondary education. The report, an update of an initial report, covers February through September 1970. Actions taken on educational reform legislation include (1) a State school aid act; (2) an assessment and remedial assistance program in reading, mathematics, and vocational education; (3) a neighborhood education center program; and (4), two revenue measures to provide funds for the program. Additional proposals enacted were: provisions for educational media centers; omnibus school code amendments; and decentralization of the Detroit Public Schools. A full State funding model of State school aid distribution is presented with a simulation of its impact on local school districts and on State expenditures. (Author)
