MEA: Too Many People Making $ Off Public Schools

MEA president made $212,848 last year

Steve Cook, president of the Michigan Education Association, was quoted Tuesday in MIRS after he spoke about school funding at the State Board of Education meeting:

"If we're going to be honest with ourselves for just a second, we have to acknowledge there is simply too many people and private corporations making too much money off the public schools with very little student learning to show for it.” 

Cook's comment is a reference to the private, for-profit companies that manage charter public schools. Cook made $212,848 in 2013 as president of the MEA, a private organization with annual revenues of $133 million.
