MEA’s A+ Agenda contains commonsense reforms that will help make Michigan a leader in public education by offering real, balanced solutions to the issues facing our schools.
MEA is working proactively in Lansing to advance a bold reform agenda that can improve public schools and help Michigan students compete in the 21st century economy.
“’MEA’s A+ Agenda’ contains commonsense reforms that will help make Michigan a leader in public education through real, balanced solutions to the issues facing our state,” said MEA President Iris K. Salters.

The A+ Agenda represents what MEA will advocate FOR in the Michigan Legislature in 2011. It is not a complete list of everything the association believes in. MEA’s mission is “to ensure that the education of our students and the working environments of our members are of the highest quality” and the A+ Agenda fits with our mission.
