Rep. Brad Paquette, the Chair of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on K-12 education, talks on the House floor Thursday before passage of legislation providing record funding for public education in Michigan. Rep. Paquette says the plan will provide $9,000 for every student in every Michigan community, emphasize making up for learning loss, and provide more transparency.
Rep. Paquette speaks on the House floor Tuesday afternoon prior to passage of a two bill package that would create a Student Opportunity Scholarship program in Michigan to help families with education expenses. Rep. Paquette says the plan will help the state move from what he calls the “cult of the average.”
State Rep. Brad Paquette, of Niles, today expressed full opposition to Berrien Regional Educational Service Agency’s (RESA) newly adopted policy granting 10 additional paid sick leave days to employees vaccinated against COVID-19 to be used if they contract or are exposed to the virus, but not to unvaccinated employees.
