Michigan is joining several other states in a lawsuit against the US Department of Education and Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos over the way she ordered coronavirus school aid funds to be distributed. The suit contends that coronavirus relief funding will favor private schools over Michigan's public schools.

The announcement of the lawsuit was made at a press conference held on Tuesday (7/7). Video of the press conference, featuring Attorney General Dana Nessel, State Superintendent Michael Rice, and Governor Gretchen Whitmer is below.
