Gov. Gretchen Whitmer on Friday signed a bill to repeal a controversial state law which for years has punished Michigan students who fall behind more than one grade level in reading and writing by forcing them to repeat the third grade.
Michiganders have seen thousands of new jobs, progress on a lengthy list of road repairs, lower costs for families pinched by inflation, and continued efforts to make the state a safer place to live, work and learn.
More than 600 aspiring teachers received some big help with their college tuition this week thanks to a new state assistance program from Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s administration designed to support students and alleviate a shortage of educators across Michigan.
