As a former educator and school board trustee, it is an honor to lead the Michigan House Education Committee and help implement necessary reforms to better prepare our students for successful futures.
Significant changes must be made to improve Michigan’s education performance. Michigan education is ranked at the bottom nationally and it is time to shake things up. Over the next two years I will work with my colleagues, Republicans and Democrats, to focus on literacy, mental health support, calendar flexibility, accountability and prioritized funding to best meet the needs of our students.
