Education Policy Director Mike Van Beek was a guest today on “The Frank Beckmann Show” on WJR AM760, where he discussed the expanding payroll of the Michigan Education Association teachers union.

Van Beek said the MEA staff saw a 31 percent increase in payroll over the last five years, and a 22 percent increase in the number of employees making $100,000 or more annually.

Michigan Capitol Confidential also wrote about the story, as did Michigan Education Digest.
