Tune in to Voices of Michigan Education as we tap the wisdom of new retirees!

Thousands of Michigan teachers and other school employees retired this year–taking with them years of experience and expertise. But before they head off into retirement, several of them stopped by VOME to share their wisdom on what works in the classroom, what they might do differently and what needs to be done to help struggling schools and students. We’ll have some eye-opening conversations about the future of public school employees–and why now is the time to get involved in crafting your own profession. You’ll get a unique perspective on the state of education in Michigan–so tune in Tuesday, July 13th at 7 p.m. on WJR NewsTalk 760.

School Employee Sacrifices

This month’s radio program will examine the sacrifices that MEA members statewide have made to help balance budgets in their local school districts. Education employees are often criticized for not doing their part — and this show will highlight the many ways teachers and educational support professionals have given back and taken concessions so that students can continue to get a good education. Tune in to WJR Newstalk 760 AM at 7 p.m. tonight and the program airs statewide on Saturday.

What sacrifices have you and your colleagues made in your school district? Please share your stories.
