Charter School Information

Friends:

Please follow this link to information on the expansion of charter schools in Michigan: https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&pid=explorer&chrome=true&srcid=0B3AibfSN0ZSXMzFkMGI4ZDAtMzA4My00YWQ0LWEzY2ItODMzODMzNzZlNDZm&hl=en

As superintendent, I believe that the expansion of charger schools is not in the best interest of Clarkston's students. Further, I believe that the expansion of charter schools diminishes the quality of public schools in general.

It's an important time to contact your legislator regarding your opinion on this issue.

Thank you,
Rod

Motives Questioned: Who is Served by Educational Changes

Friends of Excellent and Locally Controlled Public Schools:

I take my hair-piece off to Birmingham Superintendent, David Larson for his editorial from September 25. http://www.hometownlife.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=2011109250322

It's a vital time for our state and federal leaders to hear an alternative to the test and choice agenda.

What do you think?
