Angerer Unveils Her “Three Keys to Learning” Plan for Students

16 August 2004 -- State House candidate calls for public schools to unlock the doors of the future by focusing on education before, during and after class

DUNDEE – As Michigan students prepare for the start of another school year, State House candidate Kathy Angerer (D-Dundee) today announced her “Three Keys to Learning” plan to ensure every child has access to a quality education.

The centerpiece of Angerer’s plan calls for public schools in Michigan to create a wider learning spectrum by focusing on educational opportunities before, during and after class to more fully prepare students for the good-paying jobs of the future.

“The 21st century economy will grow not because we do more of the same, but because we do things differently and better,” Angerer said. “Our plan creates opportunity by improving the quality of our schools and giving our children the tools they need to compete for the good-paying jobs of the future.”

The “Three Keys to Learning” package unveiled by Angerer during a press conference at the Dundee High School includes: (1) programs geared toward the education of children before they enter kindergarten; (2) reducing classroom size for students during school who attend K-12 classes and protecting our children’s educational future with the School Aid Rainy Day fund; and, (3) making schools the center of neighborhoods after class.

“Our children deserve the best. We should make sure they have access to the latest technology and have the opportunity to learn in an environment that gives them the best chance to succeed,” Angerer said. “That means investing in our schools, lowering class size, increasing early education and providing safer, disciplined schools.”

A married mother of five, Angerer helped spearhead the effort to build a new high school that opened in 2003 in Dundee. She is the Democratic candidate for the 55th State House District that covers southern Washtenaw County and western Monroe County.
