Mike Hutchinson

OUSD School Board District 5
September 14, 2020

Mike is an educator and organizer who has a strong commitment to the school district and a clear vision for addressing the district’s most pressing challenges. Mike believes, and so do we, that our city needs to stop the privatization of our public schools and remove the harmful presence of police officers in the place where our children are learning and growing.

Mike’s platform includes putting a stop to school closures, a full audit of OUSD and stopping the spread of charter schools throughout the city. Mike’s been endorsed by other leaders that we believe in — like Cat Brooks and Carroll Fife — and none of his opponents have as strong a sustained commitment to our city.
