Staffing Matters: Race,
Property Wealth, and
School Funding in
Property wealth, which is tightly coupled with race, drives Michigan’s per-pupil funding. A district enrolling 1,000 Black and free and reduced lunch students would receive $1,581,000 less than a district with no Black or FRL students. That would equate to approximately 24 additional teachers earning $50,000 per year plus fringe benefits.
