Joint Letter to Gov. Snyder on Maintaining K-12 Standards & Assessments
Wednesday, Dec 6, 2017


Classroom

View a copy of a December 5, 2017  letter sent to Governor Rick Snyder from Business Leaders for Michigan, Detroit Regional Chamber and the Grand Rapids Area Chamber of Commerce expressing strong opposition to the changes recently proposed by the Michigan Department of Education (MDE) to the M-STEP – the third round of changes in six years.

Our position is that these changes will create disruption for teachers and students, make data less reliable for parents and policymakers, and focus far less on important skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, and writing.
