Today, the Detroit Free Press released a “fact check” on Governor Snyder’s latest television ad entitled “Linda.” Despite what some have claimed, Governor Snyder has made education a priority, increased funding, and worked to make sure our schools have the resources they need all while balancing the budget. This is in contrast to several years under the Granholm Administration where K-12 education funding was cut.
The Detroit Free Press found the Governor’s ad on education to be factual, giving it a 3 out of 3 on the truthfulness scale. You can watch the ad below:
Here is a look at some of the claims made in the ad regarding education funding:
Claim: “Gov. Snyder has increased K-12 state funding every year he’s been in office.”
Claim: “At least we’re not cutting state education funding like Granholm and Schauer did.”
Republicans in Michigan are working to make sure the next generation of leaders have access to a quality education.
Bill has been working at the federal level to increase opportunity for West Michigan students by getting Washington out of the classroom and properly restoring education decisions to those who know our children best – our local school boards and the educators in our community.
The fact is, Republicans are putting forward education solutions that not only continue, but sustain Michigan’s comeback and build a longstanding base of success for our children.
