More than 60 percent of school districts in Michigan privatize at least one of the three main support services — food, custodial or transportation — according to the Detroit Free Press. The information comes from the Mackinac Center’s 2012 school privatization survey. That is a 13 percent increase over 2011 and should save taxpayers about $13 million in the first year.

Education Week, The Oakland Press and the Huron County View also wrote about the survey results.
