Labor Voices: These school reforms will move Michigan forward | The Detroit News | detroitnews.com

Investing in public education is a proven strategy to strengthen a state’s economy. However, in the past few years, politicians in Lansing have chosen a different approach. Under the guise of creating jobs, the Legislature gave corporate special interests a $1.8 billion tax break without the promise of a single new job. At the same time, state politicians cut K-12 education by about $1 billion.

Now the Legislature is at it again, pushing a political agenda that has nothing to do with creating jobs or improving public education. Some want to pass so-called “right-to-work” legislation between now and the end of the year — a politically motivated attack on public school employees and collective bargaining that will result in further destruction of the middle class.
