Congressman John Moolenaar joins She Thinks to talk about the benefits of educational freedom and the intersection of parental rights and school choice. He also addresses the opportunities and challenges state and district leaders are facing as they spend the $190 billion in emergency education funding provided by the federal government. The congressman recently introduced a House resolution recognizing National School Choice Week, an annual celebration of opportunity in education.


Representative Moolenaar represents the residents of Michigan’s Fourth Congressional District. He is a member of the House Appropriations Committee and co-chair of the Congressional Caucus on Education Innovation and Opportunity, which is also known as the Congressional School Choice Caucus.


Congressman Moolenaar has worked as a chemist and business development director, and as a school administrator. He has also served in the Michigan House of Representatives and the Michigan Senate. Congressman Moolenaar was born and raised in Midland, where he now lives with his wife, Amy, and together they have raised six children.
