Michigan’s public schools need to more rigorously measure students’ academic growth, but with fewer state rules to make that happen, Gov. Rick Snyder said today.
That means more autonomy for individual schools and teachers, and a system to financially reward outstanding teachers who can mentor others.
Also, state schools superintendent Michael Flanagan called for a virtual deregulation of schools, such as eliminating minimum number of hours or days students must attend each year.
That’s a change Snyder hinted he’ll include in his special message on education Wednesday. He said the state should give teachers and schools and the state more flexibility to teach and to lift all students to higher academic standards.
One thought on “Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder to call for overhaul of outdated public school system in speech Wednesday”
Todays outdated school system needs to be abolished. Todays teachers are by far overpaid and the school system as a whole afford a poor education for our kids at best and are no longer needed. Online instruction along side a parent strengthens family ties and quality time as well as will reduce property taxes by 85%. I can go on and on but I’m sure there will be some upset school employees when they read the truth of our failing American school system
