Also cited in Detroit News on teacher pensions
James Hohman, assistant director of fiscal policy, writes in a Detroit Free Press Op-Ed Sunday about how to fix the school employees' pension system. An editorial in Friday's Detroit News also cited a recent study by Hohman showing legislators how to fix the underfunded MPSERS while potentially saving taxpayers billions of dollars. The editorial also agreed with an earlier analysis by Hohman that charter public schools employees should not be targeted as a way to shore up the unfunded liabilities of the pension system.
Education Policy Director Michael Van Beek addressed why the pension system is underfunded here.
