Listening, Learning — and now leading a task force on special education reform
After spending many months traveling the state and listening to parents and educators about the challenges they are experiencing in Michigan’s special education system, Lt. Gov. Calley was convinced there is plenty of room for positive change. He presented his findings to the State Board of Education and was just recently appointed as chair of a new Special Education Reform Task Force formed by Gov. Rick Snyder.
The task force is just getting its discussions underway, and has created a Facebook page for the public to weigh in and share their thoughts and experiences with the group as they look to create truly meaningful reforms. You can find the page here: www.facebook.com/MISpecialEdTF.
The governor has charged the task force with issuing a report by the end of the year, so they are going to be a busy group for the next two months!
