On Tuesday, Oct. 13, I hosted an community forum on education in Van Buren Township. Van Buren Public Schools Superintendent Michael Van Tassel, Board of Education member Sherry Frazier, Director of Curriculum & Instruction Jeff Moore and McBride Middle School teacher Jason Strzalkowski lent their insights on the state of education in Michigan and shared their experiences working in Van Buren Public Schools. As your state representative, I will continue to make education my top priority and seek your input and ideas on how we can make Michigan a top 10 education state in the country.
