A Community Treasure
Ninety percent of Michigan families choose public schools. So, it only makes sense to treat public schools as a community treasure. It's our legislature's job to protect our educational institutions. "The legislature shall maintain and support a system of free public elementary and secondary schools as defined by law."
When we invest in children and support Michigan's public schools, everyone wins: parents, teachers, children, politicians, and the business owners that rely on job-ready graduates.
