State of Michigan secondary Archives: on Education


Paul Mitchell: Fight the imposition of Common Core standards & mandates

I believe in the right of states under the 10th Amendment to address their own needs including education, and particularly will fight the imposition of Common Core education standards and other similar federal mandates through federal funding.

Debbie Dingell: Quality and affordable public education including pre-K

Every American deserves the opportunity to have a quality and affordable education. Our commitment to education must begin at birth and continue throughout life with access to higher education and job re-training. Recent years have witnessed devastating cuts by the Congress in our investment in education. We must have a real commitment to education; our nation's young people are 25 percent of our population but they are 100 percent of our future.

For me, education from the time a child is born through graduation is a top priority. Early childhood education and experiences are critical to give every young person a foundation for life. We must provide the opportunity for Pre-K education for all children. We must fund K-12 public education in ways that that offer the rigorous coursework necessary to prepare students to pursue higher education.
