State School Superintendent Mike Flanagan hopes to improve on those numbers. He says now the state is putting more money into programs that are designed to help kids when they are younger.  He says better high school graduation rates can be achieved with adequate early childhood funding.

Governor Snyder agrees. In his new state budget for pre-school the Governor says the state should allocate 65 million dollars more.
