Education Summit

Hundreds of Michigan educators take a break from the classroom to attend the governor's education summit.

The summit was held Monday in Lansing. Governor Granholm emphasized the need for courses to prepare students for the high tech jobs of the future. She wants to create more small, technology oriented high schools.

The governor also wants state lawmakers to give every student four thousand dollars for college or technical school education.

The final part of the governor's plan is already a state law. It requires all high school students to take a college entrance exam instead of the MEAP test. The change takes effect during the next school year.
