Michigan For-Profit Charter School Ban Amendment (2012)
|Not on Ballot|
| This measure did not or |
will not appear on a ballot
The proposed measure would have banned the operation of for-profit charter schools in Michigan. The proposal was sponsored by Sens. Rebekah Warren and Hoon-Yung Hopgood. State aid for schools "should go to kids not corporate bottom lines," Warren said.
According to reports, the proposal was introduced in response to a bill passed by the Senate in October 2011 that would lift the cap on the number of charter schools in the state. That bill passed 20-18 in the Senate and is currently in the education committee of the Michigan House.
