New "failing schools" law
Michigan's current legal process for dealing with academically failing schools is far too vague and subjective. Most importantly, it hasn't produced any significant improvements for students. I am currently working with my Senate colleagues and education stakeholders like superintendents, principals, parents and teachers to develop a new law. Our focus is on something that reflects the recent flexibility Congress has given to the states and better allows for innovative local solutions to provide more positive academic outcomes.
