Native American community feels disrespected over proposed restructuring of educational program
April 24, 2017
On Wednesday, April 19, 2017, community members who support the Native American Education Program of the Grand Rapids Public Schools held a public hearing to discuss its future.
The meeting began with traditional welcome songs and event updates. Attendees were then surprised to learn no top administrator from the Grand Rapids Public Schools had shown up or sent a representative. Amy Westcott, Student Parent Coordinator for grades 6-12 explained that Carolyn Evans, Deputy Superintendent of Curriculum and Learning was unable to make it.
