Last night the Michigan House of Representatives reinforced MEA's call for our members to support the Senate DPS package. The House called back from the Senate their package of bills addressing the problems in DPS schools, and voted on them again last night. While there were a few improvements, such as increased funding and successor language for union members, there is also some policy language that would be truly damaging to students, parents, and educators. The bills allow for anyone to teach in DPS schools--no certification, no college degree, no high school degree, no experience required.
