Upcoming Michigan for Public Education meeting to host three pro-public ed speakers this Friday


In addition to the multiple other education-related events happening in Michigan this week (details on the others HERE), the group Michigan for Public Education is holding its quarterly speakers meeting this Friday, March 14. This event will host three outstanding speakers covering an array of topics related to protecting our public education system in Michigan:

  • David Arsen, Ph.D. from MSU will make a presentation on “School Choice or School Privatization? Finance and Choice in a High Performance State Education System”.
  • Jennifer Smith from Michigan Association of School Boards (MASB) will make a presentation on the Stand Up For Public Education campaign that is designed to build a network of groups and individuals as advocates for public education.
  • Steve Norton, Executive Director of Michigan Parents for Schools will give a brief presentation on the work his organization is doing.

The meeting is this Friday, March 14, 2014 at the MEMSPA offices at 1:00 p.m. The address of the facility is 1980 N. College Road in Mason, Michigan.

Directions: Take Exit #70 off I-127, the Holt Road exit. The MEMSPA offices are on the corner of Holt Road and N. College Road. There is a MEMSPA sign in the front of the building that is easily seen from the road. Park in the parking lot behind the building and enter through the back entrance off the parking lot. This avoids needing to use the stairs and is the location of the meeting room. There are rest rooms adjacent to the meeting room.
