The Michigan Department of Education last week released the statewide results of last school year’s student assessments and they were disastrous. They identified disastrous lost learning and bureaucratic failures in schools across the state. The Department and public school bureaucracy fought unsuccessfully to waive student assessments, but President Joe Biden’s administration rejected their push to hide data from parents and teachers.
Governor Whitmer ignored the science, the pediatricians, and the experts, locking students out of their classrooms for months at a time, and these test results prove she made a disastrous call.
Making this failure even more galling is the fact that taxpayers spent an extra $6 billion for schools during the pandemic, but still Governor Whitmer and the public school bureaucracy left the students behind.
Parents deserve answers. Our kids deserve a quality public school education. Right now, Governor Whitmer and Michigan’s public school bureaucracy aren’t delivering either.
Our kids deserve better. That starts by getting answers, and GLEP is fighting to get them.
So far, the bureaucracy isn’t talking – and that says everything we need to know.
