Today’s Detroit News editorial cites research by Mike Van Beek, education policy director, regarding teacher health insurance plans, saying “All teachers will have to contribute to the costs of their health care benefits to help (the) state recover.”

Van Beek also found that Michigan could save $500 million if teachers contributed the same amount toward their own health insurance – 27 percent – as does the average federal employee.

Information about teachers’ health insurance plans, searchable by district, can be found here.
