Supporting Detroit children and families through education.
We all know that Detroit’s future depends on how we educate our children. While Lansing has committed to funding Detroit schools and paving the way our of bankruptcy Matt knows that a strong voice is will be needed in the Capitol to combat a wavering commitment to Detroit’s education system.
As representative of District 4, Matt will fight for Detroit’s children and families at both the local and state levels. This means fighting for consistent funding of schools that is representative f the needs of the District as well as ensuring local control over local schools.
In addition to advocating for Detroit schools in Lansing, Matt hopes to utilize the office of the State Representative to organize communities around their local schools to ensure that communities are equipped to serve students above and beyond what the state provides including developing continuing education and job training programs.
