State Rep. Jaime Greene, Republican Vice Chair of the House Education Committee, today unveiled a resolution to declare Jan. 22-28, 2023, as School Choice Week in the state of Michigan.
House Resolution 20, authored by Greene, is co-sponsored by close to 40 House legislators. School choice advocates who attended today’s House session were officially welcomed to the chamber by Greene.
“Parents across Michigan have an inherent right to educational freedom in order to best prepare their children to be successful in our global economy,” said Greene, R-Richmond. “Expanding access to effective schools should be important to all our state’s leaders, and I’m honored to help recognize the critical role that school choice plays for many parents.”
Greene, a longtime advocate for school choice, said education reform should be a bipartisan issue. Research in Michigan and across the nation clearly demonstrates that providing parents with multiple schooling options improves academic performance.
State Rep. Jaime Greene, R-Richmond, this week served as the legislative sponsor for a group of Michigan teenagers who are learning leadership skills and gaining first-hand knowledge of the political process through TeenPact Leadership Schools.
The House just voted to eliminate Michigan’s A – F grading scale for school performance. This system needed to be replaced with a new, easy-to-understand accountability tool to inform parents about a school’s quality of education. Instead, it was removed entirely.
