This week Governor Rick Snyder is expected to lay out his education agenda in a major speech to policymakers and Michigan parents and students. In an op-ed in The Detroit Free Press, Amber Arellano, executive director of the Education Trust-Midwest, urges Governor Snyder and the state legislature to choose the path of smart education reform that will truly benefit children and not be sucked into the poisonous, combative politics that are dividing Americans in other states.

While governors in Wisconsin, Ohio, and elsewhere have attacked teachers collective-bargaining rights and marginalized the societal importance of teachers spurring understandable backlashes, Michigan's new governor and state legislature need to know that they can advance bold education reforms without following these divisive models.

Learn more about Ed Trust-Midwest's goals for Governor Snyder, read Arellano's recent piece in The Detroit News.
