Hello, my name is Cody Gonyeau and this is my PowerPoint on current event issues in education
This article was written by Ryan Steven from the Detroit Statehouse examiner. Michigan failed to receive a grant for education
Why is this important? Our schools have been experiencing a great deal of budget cuts. Our legislature would have liked this grant to promote more job opportunities
In order to get this grant from the U.S. department of education. Our state was demanded to send in reasons why we need the money.
These are the states that were chosen for the Race to the Top Educational Grant. Notice I pin pointed out the locations of the states. Does this become an issue if mostly all of the states are on the eastern side of the country?
The grant money towards our public schools would have been very useful. A lot of our schools administrations wouldn’t experience budget cuts and job losses. This all plays in to effect on the major delegations being brought to Lansing.
The money would have impacted the school system with more technology opportunities. Students could have had access to computers or other types of technology that would have helped them learn.
Mainly a big reason that the grant could have helped us is it would have brought job security to our current teachers. Who knows it could have also opened up more jobs available to people
From now on the state must realize that grants directed towards our educational system could have been very helpful. One of the major benefits the state could have faced.
In conclusion we now may still experience some more budget cuts within the future.
These are a couple articles that I used in relation to the Race for the Top grant information.
I cited my picture sources as well.

Michigan State House of Representative lawmakers look to more public education reforms<br />Ryan Stevens<br />Detroit Statehouse examineer<br />Michigan legislature did not pass for the federal educational grant-Race to the Top dollars.<br />
Why is this Issue Important??<br />The Michigan public school have been hurting financially, experiencing a deal of budget cuts.<br />The state legislature was hoping to be one of the states that could be promoted with this educational grant which would have saved a lot of jobs<br />
The U.S. Department of Education demanded to document past educational reform success. <br />The state legislature was also asked to outline plans for what the money will be used for towards the public school systems in Michigan<br />
The states that won the Race to the Top Educational Grant were:<br />BENJAMIN GOHS<br />Editor<br />Charlevoix Courier<br />Colorado,<br />Delaware, <br />Florida,<br />Georgia,<br />Illinois, <br />Kentucky, <br />Louisiana,<br />Massachusetts,<br />New York, <br />North Carolina, <br />Ohio, <br />Pennsylvania, <br />Rhode Island, <br />South Carolina,<br /> Tennessee.<br />Note: Is it odd that majority of the winning states for this grant are eastern states?<br />
Was the Legislation necessarily the reason for this issue?<br />On account the state legislature had to put together an outline of budget plan with the Race to the Top grant.<br />
How might this impact K-12 in Michigan?<br />Within our recent decade technology has found its way into the classroom. It has been forming a different way students may learn.<br />
Another reason why we could have used this grant in Michigan is we could save and increase the number of teaching jobs available in our state.<br />
What is being done in result to this issue?<br />The state legislature has realized how important it is to focus on grants directed towards our educational system. Our state is now going to try to apply for grants with a stronger budget outline<br />
In Conclusion<br />Our legislature has now undergone passing different educational budgets there will be around a couple budget decisions this upcoming year.<br />
