I am writing from Michigan State University about a ground breaking project linking high schools in the United States with high schools in Algeria. This "Partnership Schools Program," funded by the U.S. State Department, is a collaborative program between Michigan State University, Creative Associates International in Washington, D.C., and the Algerian Ministry of National Education.
On Tuesday, November 13th, I was asked to join Dave Michelson, MEA in a meeting with the legislative staff of Senator Brater. She has had for a number of years a bill that would raise the compulsory school age to eighteen, and wants to take a run at it again. Senate Bill 11 is her version. There is a House bill that is scheduled for a hearing in December.
