Election Guide: Farmington Schools Seek Millions for Improvements

August 1, 2013

"We cannot spend money for things that are necessary in terms of infrastructure and upgrades as we once were able to do because the funding has just declined so much."

Howard Wallach, Farmington School Board President.

The largest bond proposal on next Tuesday’s ballot in Metro Detroit is in the Farmington Public Schools. The district is seeking more than 200-million dollars for a variety of improvements to buildings, classrooms, and technology. Howard Wallach is the President of the Farmington School Board. He tells WDET’s Pat Batcheller that it is a lot of money, but is also in line with what other districts of its size have requested in recent years.
