Charter Supporters Continue to Oppose Limits on Parental Choice in Detroit

Please attribute the following statement to Jared Burkhart, Executive Director, Michigan Council of Charter School Authorizers:

“Even some charter school supporters that attended today’s press conference with Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan do not support the flawed Senate version of the DEC. We continue to support an education system that empowers parents to make the best choice for their children, not a politically appointed commission. Our focus is not on protecting DPS but rather providing the best education for all students.”
