MEA TV Ad: "Robbing"

The Michigan Education Association released television ads May 23 calling on state politicians to "stop robbing our kids' future" and to reject cuts to the state's K-12 budget.

"Michigan citizens, including teachers and school employees, are fed up with the state politicians who voted to cut $1 billion from local schools while giving a $1.8 billion tax break to rich CEOs and corporate special interests," MEA President Iris K. Salters said. "The new ads leave no room for interpretation: Out-of-touch politicians are balancing their budget on the backs of our kids, and they will be held accountable for their actions."
