mlive.com: NewsFlash - Granholm wants to boost funding for every school in state

Gov. Jennifer Granholm wants all K-12 public schools in Michigan to receive an immediate boost in their state funding.

Granholm on Tuesday will ask the Legislature to raise per-student funding by $25 statewide during the current fiscal year. The Democratic governor said the increase, which she described as modest, is available because fewer students are enrolled than projected.

Here's how the article closes -
Mary Ann Cleary of the House Fiscal Agency attributed the falling student size to the fact that the largest class in the K-12 system is now leaving. She said it's also possible that those numbers could be affected by families leaving the state. (My emphasis added.)

Duh! Do you think that could have an effect?
