Letter to Rep. Lyons and Rep. Peter MacGregor regarding HB 619

Lisa Posthumus Lyons <LisaLyons@house.mi.gov>;

Dear Representative Lyons--

Under the current legislation, parents have access to cyber schools.  I agree with the Michigan Department of Education and the Michigan Board of Education among many other education groups which oppose the bill.  I feel strongly that this bill moves Michigan cyber schools away from the mission to educate at-risk and drop out students and will drain money from the School Aid Fund which will cause further cuts to traditional public as well as publicly funded charter schools.  Please vote no.


Consider sending the letter to Representative Peter MacGregor.  He represents District 73 currently.  We will be in that district following the next election.  PeterMacGregor@house.mi.gov
