Meaningful Education Reform ERC board member, Thomas McCleary, Jr., greets Greg Brock, director of GLEP Asserting, "Old solutions have not worked," Greg Brock of the Great Lakes Education Project addressed the issue of education reform during the March ERC forum at the Grosse Pointe War Memorial in Grosse Pointe Farms. Brock is former executive director of the Michigan Republican Party. He has been involved in school choice in Michigan for many years, having served as campaign director for the "Kid's First! Yes" ballot proposal. He was subsequently named executive director of GLEP, a Grand Rapids-based political action committee that seeks to effect changes in education on behalf of Michigan's kids. In addition, he is executive director of the American Dream, a group that supports candidates for federal office. Link to Great Lakes Education Project Challenge Public Schools Brock explained that in some communities, present educational options available to parents for their children do not sufficiently challenge public schools to rise above the status quo. Consequently, Brock said, "Kid's hopes and dreams are dying because there has been no reform in their district." According to Brock, the GLEP goal is to see the State provide "equal opportunity for a quality education to all pupils, regardless of their parent's means. And so that every parent can have a choice, he said GLEP backs an initiative to lift the State-mandated cap on the number of charter schools from the present level of 150. "In most cases," Brock said, "charter schools are a resounding success. He recognized, however, "There is no substitute for parental involvement." Education Project Initiatives Other initiatives of interest to GLEP are preservation of Proposal A, improved voter turnout through consolidation of school elections with other elections, and increased fiscal accountability for Michigan's Intermediate Schools Districts. In view of existing state and local budget concerns, public education financing currently is receiving widespread attention. Brock noted that education funding has received added attention with the recent rejection by lawmakers and some educators of the $300 million in urban education assistance offered by entrepreneur Bob Thompson.

Tommy G. Thompson and former Milwaukee Public Schools Superintendent Howard Fuller all have urged Michigan residents to vote yes on a referendum question that would set up a school voucher system in that state, said Greg Brock, campaign manager for Michigan's Kids First.All of them focused on the same theme : That school vouchers are working in Milwaukee and can work in Michigan, too, said Brock and Clarene Anderson, Norquist's education aide.The scripts for the Norquist and Fuller ads say Milwaukee's 10-year-old choice program has pushed the public schools to do better.We asked them (to help) because it means a lot to the people of Michigan that vouchers have worked in a major urban area in a neighboring Midwestern state, said Brock, whose organization has raised $ 12.9 million in the past year, first to get the question on the ballot and then to push for its approval.Norquist agreed to tape the ad because Milwaukee's voucher program could be affected by debates over vouchers elsewhere, Anderson said.For example, a lawsuit in one state could result in a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that affects all school voucher programs nationwide, she said.Michigan's referendum is one of three major contests over school choice this year.The others are in California, where a referendum question also is on the ballot ; and in Cleveland, where litigation on the issue is headed for the Supreme court.The Michigan ballot question, Proposition 1, would authorize $ 3, 300 vouchers for children in failing school districts - those where more than one-third of students fail to graduate.Brock dismissed those polls and said his group's own polling showed the race in a dead heat.But the voucher polls and the closeness of the presidential race - both nationally and in Michigan - have set some unusual politics in motion.Bush, the Republican presidential nominee, supports vouchers.But he hasn't spoken out in favor of them in recent appearances in Michigan or California, apparently fearing he would draw opposition as the referendum questions fall in the polls.Brock said he understands that Bush was trying to build a coalition and said his group still considered Bush a friend.At the same time, Michigan Gov.Brock, a former GOP activist, said he was encouraged by Norquist's support, which showed that voucher supporters were not exclusively Republicans and conservatives.He also praised Norquist and Thompson for bold and courageous leadership on educational issues, and said they and Fuller would share credit if Michigan's proposition is approved.Wisconsin has bolder and stronger leadership than in Michigan, Brock said.
