The Mackinac Center for Public Policy is a nonpartisan policy research organization that promotes sound solutions to state and local policy questions. Its work includes publishing reports and studies on such diverse topics as fiscal policy, health care and education. The Center is also known for the high school debate workshops it holds each fall, which are attended by hundreds of students and teachers. In the realm of education policy, the Mackinac Center’s leadership is empowering Michigan parents to choose the safest and best schools for their children, and it has been described as “the nation’s leading advocate for a universal tax credit” by The Wall Street Journal. Although the Center makes no bones about its market-based approach, it is not aligned with any political party or ideology.
