New Education Legislation Signed into Law
Legislation sponsored by 108th District State Representative Ed McBroom amending the Michigan Merit Curriculum has been signed into law by Governor Rick Snyder. The Dickinson County Republican’s measure allows students to fulfill the Algebra II requirement by completing a career and technical education program that has the material embedded into lessons. The bill also provides additional opportunities for students to pursue courses that will prepare them for careers in skilled trades, while maintaining high standards in terms of required curriculum. It is now Public Act 208 of 2014.
