On the same day that we posted a blog urging the state of Michigan to reconsider their ESSA plan, the state’s lieutenant governor, Brian Calley, pushes for a rework of the state’s ESSA plan that was submitted by state superintendent Brian Winston. Is it a coincidence? Who knows. But we will take it.
The movement would add more accountability and assessment mechanisms to hold schools more accountable for educating our children. What are mechanisms? Anything that sets up a system for schools to report their progress of teaching kids in the classroom. We will work with others in Michigan to help improve this plan that will hopefully improve our kid’s education.
