Why doesn't Michigan have an educational choice program?
A state lawmaker called on the state to amend its constitution to allow for private school choice in 2014. The Michigan constitution does not permit parents to use their children’s public funding at private schools.

Is anyone trying to propose an educational choice program in Michigan now?
Yes. The Mackinac Center and Michigan Catholic Conference are continuing to promote private school choice through a constitutional amendment. However, such a proposal has not been introduced in the legislature. Gov. Rick Snyder (R) has yet to state whether he would support a constitutional amendment allowing private school choice.
