REACTION...From The Detroit Free Press: School officials across Michigan -- from K-12 to higher education -- were reeling from Gov. Rick Snyder's proposal to slash funding for schools and universities. From The Detroit News: Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder will propose cutting funds to cities and schools when he unveils his plan to "right-size" state government with his 2012 budget presentation. He proposes cutting public schools 4 percent, or about $470 per student. Intermediate school districts would be cut 5 percent. The state's public universities would get 15 percent less, but $83 million would be set aside to be shared with universities that kept tuition increases around 7 percent or less, according to state Budget Director John Nixon.
