The Michigan House has passed a school safety plan that would create a statewide school safety commission and provide grant money for schools to improve building security.
MEA members support enhanced school safety, oppose allowing more guns in schools
LANSING – The Michigan Education Association (MEA) today released results from a new statewide survey of its members that found an overwhelming majority oppose arming educators. Legislation to allow school personnel to carry guns or keep guns in locked boxes in schools has been proposed by politicians at both the state and national level.
A package of bills targeting teacher preparation at Michigan’s colleges and universities – largely opposed by MEA and higher education groups – emerged from a contentious approval process in the Education Reform Committee.
