It is time for change….

It is time that we take seriously the necessary reforms to education in Michigan.  I am extremely proud of the work we are doing in Lincoln Park.  This work involves scrutinizing and overhauling every system we currently have to provide a high quality educational system that meets the needs of ALL of our students while also providing a supportive and quality working environment for our employees.  Please read this article below.

The “Gap”

Another article outlining the alarming “gap” between affluent and “poor” students.  As an educator, it has always frustrated me that we continue to try to “fix” a 16 year old that is behind instead of putting solid programs in place at an early age (birth to 5 years).  These need to be inside and outside of the education arena.  These have to happen if we are able to truly ensure that EVERY child is prepared and is afforded equal opportunities.  I know what we are doing in LP to do our part.  There is so much more that can be done at the regional, state, and federal level.
