Literacy Day I think that Jeremy and Henry's proposal delves into an extremely important issue and should be highly regarded as we make the decisions for Lansing. Michigan is well documented in its educational failings with low test scores and low literacy rates. Many students are being forced to repeat grades in elementary school as they have not been properly taught over the course of many years. However, using Jeremy and Henry's ideas, this can hopefully be changed. Their solutions introduce tools in a fun and exciting ways that can get the youth to strive to work harder. With both after school clubs and programs, students can get extra time to hone their craft. Statewide literacy day advocates for the issue and hopefully brings awareness to the struggles many go through.
