Need to Support Children Inspires Coalition on Education
A group has come together to raise the bar for public education and better serve children. The coalition of students, parents, educators, advocates and community members have all noted the need to collaborate in order to give all the state’s children the opportunity to achieve.
Children and parents will speak about the need to remedy such problems as overcrowded classrooms, inadequate infrastructure and too few qualified teachers. The event is organized by such diverse stakeholders as civil rights organizations, charter school administrators, teachers, faith based groups and education advocates. The coalition is growing and this event invites those who want to lend their efforts to improving education for Michigan’s students.
