Kivela Named to Task Force to Better Education in Michigan
MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – 109th District State Representative John Kivela has been named to a task force charged with finding solutions for Michigan’s struggling schools.
The task force, put forth by Michigan House Democrats, is a response to an effort by House Republicans to expand the Education Achievement Authority across the state.
Democrats say the EAA, which has been in place in Detroit since the start of the school year, is not working and students have reported conditions detrimental to learning in those schools.
The task force will investigate education reform measures undertaken in other states, evaluate their success and determine whether those solutions could be implemented in Michigan.
Legislation based on their findings will be introduced in the state Legislature.
