GLEP: Expanded Opportunities for Michigan Students Will Let Kids Learn
LANSING – Great Lakes Education Project Executive Director Beth DeShone provided the following statement today after the approval in House and Senate committees of legislation to enhance learning opportunities for Michigan students:
“Parents spoke out today to tell lawmakers that every student in every community deserves opportunities for success, no matter their family’s income, their background, or their learning or health challenges. The pandemic’s taken a real toll on Michigan children, both in-and-outside the classroom.
“Our kids need instruction tailored to their individual needs, so they can get an education that allows them to stay on track during pandemic disruptions. GLEP is excited about the legislation approved today that would allow students to access the school, services, and tools necessary to meet their individual learning needs.”
The Great Lakes Education Project is a bi-partisan, non-profit advocacy organization supporting quality choices in public education for all Michigan students. GLEP strongly supports efforts to improve academic achievement, increase accountability and empower parental choice in our schools.
