Education

As families deal with Flint’s ongoing water crisis, the work being done in the schools where they send their children might be more important than ever.

The Michigan State University College of Education has had a long relationship with Flint Community Schools, and that effort was boosted last week by a $2 million grant from the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation.

New legislation has been proposed that would restrict the use of seclusion and restraint of Michigan students to emergency situations only. We speak with the sponsor of one of the bills, State Representative Frank Liberati, and with Elmer Cerano, executive director of Michigan Protection and Advocacy Services.


We speak with a mid-Michigan art teacher about Youth Art Month about ways to be involved, even if your school has nixed arts education.
