Because public education and school financing is such an important subject to many organizations and the general public, the Michigan Public Education Finance Project will be conducted with maximum transparency, including:
- All legislative drafts, reports and recommendations will be public and accessible on-line.
- Regular consultations will be held with education interest groups.
- The Superintendent and professional staff of the Michigan Department of Education will be asked to be actively involved with their expertise.
- Key education and appropriations staffs in the legislature will be asked to participate on a bipartisan basis.
