Educators across the country are hosting discussions in conjunction with National School Choice Week.

There are a number of events in the Lansing area, including the screening of a documentary on school choice at the Capitol on Tuesday morning. That event is sponsored by the Mackinac Center for Public Policy, which bills itself as a nonpartisan research and educational institute based in Midland. 

Current State's Mark Bashore talks with Audrey Spalding, educational policy director for the Mackinac Center for Public Policy, and State Rep. Sarah Roberts (D-St. Clair Shores).  She’s sponsored legislation that would place a moratorium on the number of new charter schools that could be created in Michigan.
