Public school advocates in Michigan are suing to block the state from helping private schools with the cost of complying with state requirements such as immunization reporting and safety drills.

The Michigan Association of School Boards and groups representing school administrators and others say that spending $2.5 million in the current state budget on nonpublic schools is unconstitutional.

The organizations say they want to stop the funding before it becomes an annual allotment and potentially grows to a bigger amount.
