It seems fitting that this, the 100th edition of This Week in Politics in 5 Sentences (or Fewer), is the one in which we announce that the Senate has passed SB 103 and brought an end to the over two-year debate about changes to Michigan's educator evaluation law.
This week, the Michigan Senate voted to concur with the educator evaluation bill—SB 103 (H-8)—that passed the Michigan House last week. With this vote, the legislature has completed the work begun over two years ago to rewrite our state's educator evaluation law. This has been a long and, at times, contentious battle, so please TAKE ACTION by sending a thank you letter to those lawmakers who voted to push this issue over the finish line.
