Governor Snyder announced today he signed an executive order which would move the School Reform Office from the Michigan Department of Education, which is directed by the State Board of Education, to the Department of Technology, Management and Budget, which is under the Governor’s authority.

“Today’s executive order is another example of Governor Snyder ignoring the voice of Michigan’s voters by stripping the elected State Board of Education of its oversight authority of the Department of Education’s school reform work,” President David Hecker said. “Moving an office with an educational focus from the Department of Education, which understands education policy and has expertise to a department focused on budgets is bad public policy.”
