Amiah’s Story: How School Choice and a Job Got Her on Track

Amiah’s Story: How School Choice and a Job Got Her on Track is produced by the Mackinac Center.

From the Mackinac Center’s video description:

The right school can turn around a child’s life. Amiah came from a broken home, living with a mother who abused drugs. Her grandmother, who helped raise her, died when she was young and after a fight at her traditional public school, she was kicked out. But she found hope. Amiah ended up at Lighthouse Academy, a charter school, which eventually led her to connect with Jobs for Michigan Graduates, a non-profit which connects kids with employment opportunities. Through that, she got a job with a metal factory, enlisted in the Air Force and will be attending college. Learn more at https://www.mackinac.org/education.
