GENERAL

SCHOOL LAWS OF MICHIGAN.

CONSTITUTIONAL PROVISIONS.

ARTICLE X.

FINANCE AND TAXATION.

(1) SECTION 1. All subjects of taxation now contributing to the primary school interest fund under present laws shall continue to contribute to that fund, and all taxes from such subjects shall be first applied in paying the interest upon the primary school, university and other educational funds in the order herein named, after which the surplus of such moneys shall be added to and become a part of the primary school interest fund.

(2) SEC. 2. The legislature shall provide by law for an annual tax sufficient with other resources to pay the estimated expenses of the state government, the interest on any state debt and such deficiency as may occur in the resources.

Under the sections of the constitution providing for uniformity of taxation and conferring power on the legislature to levy a state tax, etc., on cash valuation of property (Art. 10, 8 $ 2, 3, 7), the state may authorize the review of valuations and assessments by the board of state tax commissioners.-Attorney General v. Board of Supervisors of Midland County, 178 / 513.

ARTICLE XI.

EDUCATION.

(3) SECTION 1. Religion, morality and knowledge being necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind, schools and the means of education shall forever be encouraged.

It was the intent of the constitution to separate the school organization from the general municipal government. Though municipal corporations, organized for the same purposes, with like powers and duties, cannot exist in the same territory, those having different purposes, rights and duties, may, and often do, occupy the same territory.--Attorney General v. Thompson, 168 / 511. The language of this section is from the ordinance of 1787. The reassertion of this doctrine after the lapse of more than a century and a quarter, coupled with the fact that legislation in this state upon the subject of education has from the beginning been of the most liberal character, indicates a settled purpose on the part of the state to provide, foster and protect educational facilities for all. -Dennis v. Wrigley, 175 / 621, 625.
