Improve Education & Skills Training - Gretchen Whitmer for GovernorSkip to content Stand with Michigan against hate. CONTRIBUTE TODAY! X Gretchen Whitmer for Governor About Issues News Media Store DONATE Improve Education & Skills Training HOME ISSUES IMPROVE EDUCATION & SKILLS TRAINING A generation ago, Michigan led the world in public education. This was the state families packed up and moved to because parents knew their children could get a quality education and the skills they needed to get a good-paying job. As a mom with two daughters in high school, these are the same opportunities I want for my own kids. But over the [DATE REMOVED], Republicans in Lansing have sided with Betsy DeVos to push an education agenda that included slashing school funding, expanding unaccountable for-profit managed charter schools, over-emphasizing standardized tests, attacking hard-working educators and adopting a one-size fits all approach to education that has left our kids behind. This agenda has resulted in Michigan being near the bottom of the country on almost every meaningful metric from student literacy to college preparedness. Our educational crisis affects urban, rural and suburban school systems alike, and it disproportionately affects kids who are at-risk or have special needs. It doesn’t have to be like this. READ GRETCHEN’S FULL PLAN Michigan needs a governor who knows how to get things done to fix our schools, so every student has the support, tools and skills they need to compete for high-wage jobs and have full and productive lives. Students are preparing for jobs that don’t even exist today, which means we must teach them how to think critically, to problem solve complex issues and to work as a team. That’s what this agenda is all about. My plan focuses on the first [DATE REMOVED] of a child’s life. We will prioritize early childhood education funding and get Michigan on a path to universal preschool to ensure that when kids enter kindergarten, they are ready to learn. When children enter school, they need safe classrooms with high quality teachers to meet them where they are and help them succeed. Michigan will respect our educators and treat them as professionals, instead of attacking them for Lansing’s policy failures. We will expand offerings that give every child – regardless of their zip code – exposure to a full curriculum of classes and opportunities to find the right path for their future. Lastly, when a child reaches high school, we need to help them develop a plan so they leave prepared for further education – be it with a certificate in the skilled trades, technical apprenticeship or to pursue a college track career. We must provide pathways of equal rigor for all these options. We will expose students to a wider variety of jobs earlier, so they have time to pursue classes that prepare them for life in the workforce. If their path is college, we will help them select the best one for their needs and provide a two-year debt-free talent investment if they work hard. Making these changes won’t be easy, but I’m ready to roll up my sleeves and work with anyone who is serious about finding solutions to improve our schools and help every student build a good life right here in Michigan. My plan for improving public education focuses on: Quality Education from Cradle to Career Paths to Prosperity with a Highly Educated Workforce Respect for Educators Stabilizing School Funding and Improving Accountability READ GRETCHEN’S FULL PLAN DOWNLOAD THE FACT SHEET RETURN TO ISSUES Meet Gretchen Meet Garlin Issues News Volunteer Events Media Store Donate JOIN GRETCHEN Facebook Twitter Instagram YouTube Medium P.O.

X Gretchen Whitmer for Governor About Issues News Media Store DONATE POSTED ON [DATE REMOVED] 1, 2018 BY ADAM FOX-LONG Former President Barack Obama Urges Michigan Voters to Support Gretchen Whitmer in New Radio Ad DETROIT — Today the Whitmer for Governor campaign began airing a radio ad featuring former President Barack Obama. The 60-second ad focuses on Whitmer’s work as Senate Democratic Leader to expand Medicaid to more than 680,000 Michiganders and her plans to clean up our drinking water and improve education and skills training. “I’m so proud to have the support of President Obama because this election is so crucial for Michiganders,” said Whitmer. “Health care is on the ballot this [DATE REMOVED]. Clean drinking water and good schools for our kids are on the ballot. It’s so important that everyone gets out and votes so we can start solving problems for the people of our state. Let’s get it done.” “Gretchen Whitmer is keeping her foot on the gas and doing everything she can to turn out voters and help elect Democrats up and down the ballot,” said Whitmer for Governor Deputy Communications Director Eileen Belden. “Meanwhile, Republicans are abandoning Bill Schuette left and right, and his campaign has cancelled ad buys across the state as Michiganders reject his record of trying to rip health care away from hundreds of thousands of people.” CLICK HERE TO LISTEN TO THE AD AD SCRIPT: PRESIDENT OBAMA: “This is Barack Obama. In this election, the health of millions is on the ballot. The character of our country is on the ballot. And your vote can make the difference. As Senate Leader, Gretchen Whitmer worked to raise the minimum wage and expand Medicaid so that 680,000 people now have health care. That’s huge. Gretchen believes, like I do, that every child deserves a good school and safe water to drink. And she has a plan to give people the skills and training they need to get good jobs, starting in high school. You’re not going to have to wonder if she’ll protect your health care or fight for good jobs, good wages, and good schools. She’s proven that she will. Gretchen never gives up. So make a plan for [DATE REMOVED] and take some friends with you to vote for Gretchen Whitmer. Let’s bring it home, Michigan.” NARRATOR: “Find your polling place and vote [DATE REMOVED] 6th between [DATE REMOVED] and [DATE REMOVED].
