Action Alert! Input need on Michigan Education Finance Act!
Here is a great opportunity to let the Oxford Foundation, the rewriters of Michigan’s School Aid Act, know that we want education for gifted students included in the new bill. The bill is to be based on performance, not seat time, so think about ways that performance of gifted learners can be measured and tied to funding.
The Oxford Foundation wants your input! Please take a few minutes and fill out their form at http://oxfordfoundationmi.com/2012/09/19/michigan-education-finance-project-seeks-input-from-education-groups-parents-and-the-public/
This is a once-in-a-lifetime bill. We need to be heard now and heard loudly! This may be the best opportunity to change our education system to meet the needs of gifted children.
To see what the Michigan Association for Gifted Children has proposed in its meeting with the Oxford Foundation, view the PDF at http://oxfordfoundationmi.files.wordpress.com/2012/08/magc-requests-for-mi-ed-finance-act-2013.pdf
