LANSING, MI (WHTC News)  --  Governor Snyder unveiled his proposal to revamp Michigan’s public schools today. His ideas center on integrating different levels of education into a single system that flows from early childhood through the completion of an advanced degree. Mr. Snyder wants to give teachers and schools more freedom to find solutions and measure performance, while holding local districts more accountable for results, and giving students more options to succeed. Among the reforms he is proposing is the establishment of a Michigan Office of the Great Start-Early Childhood, along with a “State of Education in Michigan” dashboard similar to one he put up for state government when he first took office.
