    School Union Denounces "Dangerous Trend" of Privatized Services

    The March/April 2009 Michigan Capitol Confidential has a story about the Michigan Education Association launching recalls against local school board members who seek to save money by hiring private contractors to do non-instructional work like prepare meals, drive buses and clean the schools. What do you think?

    The "Michigan Capitol Confidential" is a tool of the Mackinac Center, used to further their position. Is Michigan Votes so desperate they must resort to inciting Michiganders to comment with stories from their own publication? Isn't presenting the bills with a biased description working out for them?

    I don't see where the problem related to hiring private contractors to do the non instructional services in schols is. I have an office cleaning service and I would be delighted to expand my business by also working with schools. Since they save money by hiring private contractors, it's a win win situation.
