Statement from House Democratic Leader Tim Greimel (D-Auburn Hills) on State Senator Knollenberg’s Racially Insensitive Comments:

“I was disappointed to see state Senator Marty Knollenberg’s racially insensitive comments in the senate Education committee yesterday. As everyone knows, a child’s ability to learn has nothing to do with their race but everything to do with support in and outside of the school. It is unfortunate he made that statement, and I’m hopeful this can be a teaching moment so Senator Knollenberg can get a better grasp of what challenges school districts face by a diverse array of students across the state.”
