The #MiCharterStory series brings together neighbors in communities across the Mitten to share our respective charter stories. Storytelling is an art form, and we know that when we open up and connect emotionally, we become more invested in each other. Public education is one of the fundamental pillars of our communities, and when public ed succeeds, we all succeed. Michigan’s charter schools celebrate the diversity, innovation and grit that set us apart - and they are powered by unique and passionate educators, students and leaders. Their stories matter, and this series is their platform.
Over 50% of Detroit students are served by charter schools - many of which who are leading in critical areas like trauma support, character development & resource access.
MAPSA's Lansing office is located just a few blocks away from the MI Capitol, where lawmakers are constantly meeting to discuss the needs of our students, and where our voices are crucial.
