Wednesday, May 28, 2014

State Representative Brian Banks (D-Harper Woods) will hold an Education Town Hall tomorrow, Thursday, May 29, at 6 p.m. at Wayne County Community College District – University Center, 19305 Vernier Road in Harper Woods.

“In a time when the attacks on public education have been prevalent, we must remain diligent in our efforts to change the dialogue about education in Lansing,” said Banks. “Numerous education bills have been introduced this legislative term. Some of these bills I believe would create a positive change while others would undoubtedly harm public education in Michigan. Your input is critical to shaping Michigan’s educational future.”

Topics will include per-pupil funding, teacher evaluation, the A-F grading system, higher education and the failing Education Achievement Authority. This event is free and open to the public.

“I would love to hear your input and take your views back to Lansing so I can continue to fight for Michigan’s public education system,” Banks said. “I look forward to seeing you at the Education Town Hall, and if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact my office.”
