The legislature has wrapped up session until after the November election without causing much of a stir. The Governor has signed into law the fix to the Michigan Merit Curriculum world language problem caused by the legislation passed in June (it is Public Act 293 of 2014 for those of you keeping track).

The House Education Committee took up legislation this week that would have mandated at least six hours of genocide education per year for all students in grades 8-12. MASSP spoke up in opposition to this bill (which was not voted out of committee) and there have been positive changes with hopefully more to come since genocide education is already imbedded in Michigan social studies HSCEs.
