Education reform plotting continues in State Senate committee this week

stem-education1Lawmakers will continue to tackle reshaping Michigan’s schools this week.

It started with a plan to repeal the so-called failing schools law that could result in up to 38 schools closing in Michigan. Last week a bill was introduced to repeal the current accreditation system for schools in the state.

Lawmakers hope to have replacement plans in place for both before moving them through the Legislature.

Senator Phil Pavlov is the chair of the Senate Education committee. He says they plan to form outlines of an education plan over the next few weeks.

“Right now we’re getting input from all the stakeholders who wanna weigh in and be part of a comprehensive solution for how we’re going to treat schools that are failing kids.”
