Why I'm Running
I'm running for the State Board of Education because I believe public education in Michigan is under attack.
We need serious people talking about serious issues:
- strengthening public institutions, like our public schools;
- providing a high quality education for all children, not just those who grow up in the suburbs; and,
- defending our colleagues in the schools who are doing tremendous work under very difficult conditions.
Michigan's children and teachers deserve safe, well-maintained, and fully-funded public schools. They also deserve the full support of our state legislature and the citizens of our state.
Strong public schools are the engine that drives a stronger Michigan.
