My partner, Dylan Dorfman,...

My partner, Dylan Dorfman, and I have recently posted our media artifact in this group. Our proposal is about the lacking curriculums throughout public schools in Michigan. These curriculums aren't just falling behind slowly, they are already way behind to the point that students are missing one to two years of academic information. This is a very concerning idea and one that should be a priority to fix. It will be very difficult to catch these students up, however, if we keep letting these curriculums run loose, it will be nearly impossible.

Computer programming language requirement? Today in one of my classes I was talking with some classmates about the high school and college language requirement. At my high school I was required to take at least two years of a language and my options were Spanish (most common), French, and German (which was no longer offered my senior year). While only two years were required, most students took three, four, or even five to stay competitive for colleges. Similarly, in college we are required to have two years of proficiency.

The following are pie charts showing where congressional discretionary spending for the fiscal years of 2015 through 2019 are allocated by the federal government. All are sourced from The National Priorities Project taking data published by the White House’s Office of Management and Budget and compiled into easy to read graphs. The 2015-2017 budgets were under the Obama Administration while the 2018 and 2019 budgets are apportioned by the Trump Administration.
