Legislative Priorities

Education & Workforce Readiness

Michigan is experiencing a prolonged shortage of talent. Across our state, employers are struggling to find skilled workers to fill critical jobs and grow their businesses. Michigan must rethink our approach to K-12 education to ensure today’s students have the skills needed to move Michigan forward. Every decision impacting public education should be based on what is best for students and how we can better enable them to emerge from high school prepared to enter the workplace or go on to college.


  • Lead efforts to narrow the skills gap, promote workforce development and increase skilled trade opportunities for students and displaced workers.
  • Champion initiatives to increase student achievement by rethinking how students learn and teachers teach.
  • Support the continuation and growth of high-quality traditional and charter schools to expand and enhance educational opportunities for all Michigan students, including preserving parental choice of schools.
