A new government board to involve Michigan parents in the state education budget-making process is set to meet for the first time on Tuesday. The Michigan Parents' Council's main responsibilities include gathering feedback from parents and family members and funneling it into a report for the governor's budget recommendations. On Monday, Governor Gretchen Whitmer announced the appointment of 11 parents to serve on the board. 'Parents are their children's first and most important teacher, and we need their input to help our kids thrive in school," Whitmer said in a press release.
