GLEP: Representative Greg Markkanen’s appointment to House Education Committee a win for students, parents

LANSING – Great Lakes Education Project Executive Director Beth DeShone today praised the appointment of Representative Gregory Markkanen to the new House Education Committee.

The Education Committee is tasked with tackling laws and reforms designed to support students, boost their performance, and to equip parents with the resources and options they need to ensure their children’s success.

“Greg Markkanen consistently puts the needs of Michigan’s students first,” said DeShone. “Markkanen’s appointment to the House Education Committee is a huge win for Michigan families. Moms like me are thrilled the committee will be led by lawmakers like Representative Markkanen who are willing to stand up for kids, to stand alongside parents, and to go toe-to-toe with Lansing’s dysfunctional education bureaucracy when it gets in our students’ way.”

The Great Lakes Education Project is a bi-partisan, non-profit advocacy organization supporting quality choices in public education for all Michigan students. GLEP strongly supports efforts to improve academic achievement, increase accountability, and empower parental choice in our schools.
