Is Thinkpol next???
If the title of this piece sounds familiar, then it should concern you a great deal.
If not, then you’re looking at the beginnings of the latest round “revisions” concerning what your family will be taught in Michigan’s Public Schools.
The Michigan Board of Education (now with more democrats), will be having another go at re-working the social studies standards in Michigan Schools.
However, in order to give this sham an air of legitimacy, they will be going around Michigan engaging in yet another “listening tour”, taking input from Michiganians regarding where the focus should be at inside of the classroom. A comparison of the proposed changes, along with earlier versions, can be found at the link above.
Here are the upcoming dates and locations:
- April 29, 2019: Oakland
- April 30, 2019: Kalamazoo
- May 2, 2019: Lansing
- May 6, 2019: Grand Rapids
- May 7, 2019: Gaylord
- May 8, 2019: Saute Ste. Marie
- May 9, 2019: Escanaba
Since these are different recommendations from what was almost finalized last year (essentially going back to how they were before everyone got tipped of about the changes), I would recommend contacting the BoE and letting them know what you think about their sudden (and poorly promoted) changes to Michigan’s Classrooms.
