Supporting Education for All

The State of Michigan has cut funding to public education. The results are heartbreaking gaps in educational quality that leave kids who need more with less, including less college-level preparation. Funding crises in predominantly African American and Latino school districts have been particularly harmful.

Students at WCC, like students at most community colleges, suffer from large gaps in course, certificate, and degree completion rates based on income, first-generation college status, race, and ethnicity. I have led the board discussion about what WCC can and will do about closing these persistent gaps, and hope to continue focusing on this issue, if elected.
