It’s no secret that schools are at the heart of the community – if your school system is doing well, more than likely your community is doing well. But what if your school isn’t doing well? What options do parents have and what changes can communities make to improve their school systems?

These aren’t easy questions. In fact, they’re questions communities and legislators have been exploring for decades. Still, the only way to develop equitable solutions for all children is to continue the conversation.

On this episode of Purposeful Pitch, we speak to former Michigan State Senator John Proos on a number of education issues, including school choice and the importance of parent engagement. John is an experienced former legislator with over two decades of government service at both the federal and state levels – including serving in the Michigan House of Representatives and most recently in the Michigan Senate.

Today, John is the CEO of JP4 Government Solutions, providing strategic counsel to corporate, manufacturing and not-for-profit organizations seeking to increase productivity while decreasing the uncertainty and burden of regulations.
