The Michigan Democratic Party released the following statement on behalf of Chair Lavora Barnes regarding “Let MI Kids Learn” submission of petition signatures to the Michigan Bureau of Elections. Let MI Kids Learn is a DeVos-backed initiative that undermines Michigan’s public education and turns private schools into tax shelters for the wealthy, with individual donors receiving up to $500 million in tax credits.

“Today, Let MI Kids Learn submitted petition signatures for the purpose of circumventing Governor Whitmer’s ability to protect our children from private interests. Betsy Devos and her cronies are attempting to dismantle public education and reduce the resources for dedicated teachers who serve in the best interest of our children everyday. Michigan children deserve a  well-funded public education, and any effort to divert public school funding for private interests is unacceptable.”
