Huizenga writes U.S. education leader over issues with Michigan school funding plan – Grand Haven Tribune

U.S. Rep. Bill Huizenga is pushing for the federal government to allow Michigan to use its coronavirus federal relief dollars to cover a per-pupil funding gap, something targeted by the school aid budget agreed to by lawmakers and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer earlier this year.

U.S. Rep. Bill Huizenga, R-Zeeland, is worried the current interpretation of the coronavirus relief fund would hurt West Michigan schools.

Huizenga, R-Zeeland, sent a letter to U.S. Education Secretary Miguel Cardona on Sept. 24 asking for the Department of Education allow Michigan to use money allocated in its fiscal year 2021-22 school aid budget to cover funding gaps between the stateโ€™s affluent districts and ones with higher poverty rates.
