Paul W. Smith, who hosts a talk show from 5:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. weekdays on WJR 760AM, cited a commentary on school funding by Education Policy Director Mike Van Beek in his Detroit News column Saturday.

Van Beek wrote that despite spending some $20 billion in local, state and federal taxes on public education in Michigan each year, the myth that schools are "underfunded" persists. The piece is part of an ongoing series examining school funding myths. As Michigan Capitol Confidential reports, Michigan spent a record amount on public schools in 2008-2009, the last year for which complete data is available.
