Campaign to Keep the Promise to Michigan's Children

 

Keep the Promise is a coalition created in response to the State's success in the lawsuit known as "Durant III."  By use of what State Court of Appeals Judge Janet Neff calls a "shell game," the state argues that it is providing money for both general education - as required by the Constitution - and special education - an added mandate required to be financed by the State by the Headlee Amendment, by - in essence - dividing the same pot of money and simply labeling part of it general ed and part of it special ed, but without providing new funds.

 

In response, the Coalition has been identifying candidates who, if elected, will support funding special education and other state mandates in addition to the general education budget.
