Statement from Executive Director Jared Burkhart on Governor Snyder’s 2017 Recommended Budget


From Jared Burkhart, Executive Director
Michigan Council of Charter School Authorizers

“Michigan Authorizers support educational choices. Students and parents in every corner of our state—regardless of geographic location or socioeconomic status—should have choices to pursue the learning opportunities that best fit their needs.

Unfortunately, the Governor’s budget proposal focuses more on institutions than on the kids they serve. Some learners perform better in an online setting, using a framework that delivers instruction virtually.

We look forward to working with the Michigan Legislature to create a system that allows children to go to school any time, any place, any way, any pace. Quality instruction must be valued the same regardless of how it is delivered.”
