AFT Michigan Statement on Snyder's School Reform Executive Order

Mar 13, 2015

The American Federation of Teachers responds to Gov. Synder’s Executive Order which move the School Reform Office from the Michigan Department of Education (State Board of Education), to the Department of Technology, Management and Budget, which is under the Governor’s authority..

“Today’s executive order is another example of Governor Snyder ignoring the voice of Michigan's voters by stripping the elected State Board of Education of its oversight authority of the Department of Education's school reform work," President David Hecker said. "Moving an office with an educational focus from the Department of Education, which understands education policy and has expertise to a department focused on budgets is bad public policy.”
