Michigan parents and families want quality public schools where our kids can be nurtured and gain the education they need to thrive.

Schools across the state are struggling with a worsening teacher shortage and student mental health challenges. We must provide our kids with better-compensated educators, smaller class sizes, and support for their mental health and other critical needs.

But instead, billionaire Betsy DeVos and her allies are want to jam through a school voucher scheme that would take away hundreds of millions a year from our kids’ schools for the benefit of for-profit private schools – all while giving her multimillionaire friends yet another massive tax break they don’t need.

About the

Ballot Proposal

The proposal has submitted the required amount of signatures, which could mean one of two things:

  1. The legislature chooses to pass the initiative themselves, which would mean that Gov. Whitmer cannot veto it and Michigan voters cannot vote on it at the ballot box.
  2. The legislature does not pass the initiative themselves, which would mean the initiative appears on the 2024 ballot and voters have their say.

Please join us to help strengthen our kids’ schools – so every child can receive the education they need to succeed. Contact your state lawmakers and ask them to vote NO if this DeVos-backed voucher scheme comes up for a vote.
