Many school choice advocates, including Nikolai Vitti, the Detroit Public Schools superintendent, say Michigan’s unregulated expansion of charter schools over the past two decades was a poor implementation. “Students are not for sale,” chanted the crowd, as Cara Goodman, a volunteer with People Govern, Not Money weaved through the protesters with a petition.
