State Rep. Pamela Hornberger, chair of the House Education Committee who spearheaded the House and Senate Return to Learn plan, has issued the following statement calling on the governor to work with the Legislature to finalize an education plan:
“Students, parents and teachers are all waiting to find out what the plan is for the coming school year. If we do nothing, students will suffer intellectually and fall behind their peers in other states.
“I am fighting to give children a voice in state government, to ensure our plan is what’s best for them and for their families. We cannot finalize a plan without the governor’s support. It’s time for her to come to the table and work with us to ensure children receive the education they are entitled to under the Michigan constitution.”
State Rep. Pamela Hornberger of Chesterfield Township has voted in support of a plan to significantly bolster support for Michigan’s law enforcement and public safety personnel – giving them the needed resources to better protect the people they serve.
The Michigan House today approved Rep. Pamela Hornberger’s plan to recognize and re-open the Lewis College of Business, Michigan’s first and only Historically Black College and University (HBCU).
