ForTheRecord says: However, that doesn’t jibe with what the Michigan Department of Education is reporting.

In 2010-11, there was $79.8 million in state funding for the school district for 12,034 students. In 2013-14, the state funding increased to $81.6 million even though there were fewer students in the district (11,318 students).
