State of Opportunity invites you to Think Again

Lead in text: 
Think Again is the name of a new feature on our State of Opportunity blog. Maybe there are stories you missed that we think deserve your attention. Or perhaps there are new developments on issues impacting Michigan's kids. Click over to State of Opportunity and see what we're highlighting for your reconsideration. Today's topic: the discipline gap in school suspensions gets federal attention.
The U.S. Department of Education and the Department of Justice have issued guidelines for educators, administrators, and lawmakers meant to improve the climate in schools by not singling out students---consciously or not---by race. Listen to what Secretary of Education Arne Duncan has to say on what's driving this initiative.
