Let MI Kids Learn Petition Drive

     The Let MI Kids Learn petition drive is underway to promote educational justice legislation. Michigan children from low-income families would qualify for “Student Opportunity Scholarships” toward their out-of-pocket educational costs at public or nonpublic schools for tutoring, school supplies, computers, and tuition among other expenses. Donors to scholarship  organizations would receive a state tax credit. Low-income parishioners and members of our community would benefit from this initiated legislation, regardless of where they send their children to school. The petitions would place this proposal before the legislature, and, if approved, would not require the governor’s signature to become law. As this is a nonpartisan effort, Catholic parishes and schools are allowed to circulate petitions. The Catholic Bishops of Michigan support this effort. Please prayerfully consider signing the two required petitions to create the scholarship program and tax credits to improve the education of Michigan’s school children.

Opportunities to Sign
     Petitions will be available in the Cathedral Parish Hall following the 5:00 p.m. Mass on Saturday, April 30th and Sunday, May 1st following the 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. Mass. Petitions are also available at St. Mary Cathedral School office and our parish office. More information about this petition can be found here: Diocese of Gaylord/ Let MI Kids Learn and Let MI Kids Learn
