Mid Michigan Community College will be hosting two community conversations focused on Michigan’s preK-12 education system and student learning. These conversations are in partnership with the Center for Michigan, a nonprofit and nonpartisan “think-and-do” tank located in Ann Arbor.
The Center for Michigan hopes to bring together between 25-35 area citizens who don’t work for educational systems but who want to share their ideas, thoughts, and concerns about the state’s current preK-12 educational environments. There will be a conversation on each of MMCC’s campuses, one in Mt. Pleasant and one in Harrison.
Conversation participants will learn more about many of the key issues and choices related to education which impact students within their communities. They will also have opportunities to share success stories about what’s working to improve student learning in local schools.
These conversations will be two of more than 250 that take place across Michigan. The feedback and ideas conveyed by participants will be compiled and shared with state officials. Through the use of interactive components, participants will convey their thoughts to everyone in the room, which should encourage vibrant discussion.
Details of the upcoming Community Conversations:
- Mt. Pleasant: 8-9:30 a.m., March 26, Room 130 at MMCC’s Mt. Pleasant Doan campus,2600 S Summerton Rd.
