EAST LANSING, Mich., February 18, 2014--The following statement can be attributed to Steven Cook, President, Michigan Education Association:

EAST LANSING, Mich., Feb. 26, 2013 — The following statement can be attributed to MEA Executive Director Gretchen Dziadosz in response to a Detroit News column this morning listing her as a potential candidate as Michigan’s next State Superintendent of Public Instruction:
Gov. Rick Snyder and state legislators find themselves with an unexpected surplus in the state budget this year.
Contrary to Snyder’s spin, this surplus is not the result of a booming Michigan economy. Michigan still has the second highest unemployment rate in the country, and our recovery is anemic compared to other states.
