Senate Roll Call 506 on 2009 Senate Bill 252
I agree. Public schools are a dismal failure. Cut our taxes and let us pay for our own children's' education. Subsidize tuition for low income parents.
Will the last person who leaves Michigan please turn out the lights........
A death sentence to Michigan K-12 schools would be the best thing to happen. Get rid of them and the powerful and greedy MEA and start from scratch. Our public schools are a massive failure and a HUGE drain on Michigans budget and more importantly what's left of Michigans hard working tax payers.
