Michigan ranks near the bottom for 4th and 8th grade math, as well as 4th grade reading, nationally.  Our education system is failing our children and undermining our future competitveness as a state.  We can and must do better as a state.  I support repealing Common Core.  The educational standards and assessments within the State of Michigan should be determined on a statewide level and not on the Federal level.  Also, I support school choice for every student.  And, I will work to ensure a quality education for all of our students.
