ASBO said of Robert Moore:
"Robert Moore's commitment to education led him to establish the framework for the School Finance Research Collaborative, an initiative to improve the education funding system in Michigan. The ultimate goal is to support sweeping school finance reforms that address weaknesses in Michigan’s outdated school funding system. A respected leader with more than 30 years as a chief financial officer, Moore was appointed director for the project in July 2016 and has worked tirelessly to inform policymakers and stakeholders about the cost for all students to achieve state standards."
