Listen to Rep. Sherry Gay-Dagnogo’s Impassioned Speech about Detroit Public Schools

Minutes before the Michigan House of Representatives passed a package of legislation that will harm Detroit Public Schools, Rep. Sherry Gay-Dagnogo (D-Detroit) — who graduated from Detroit Schools and served as a Detroit Public Schools teacher before becoming a legislator — delivered an impassioned speech about why we must protect and restore Detroit Public Schools, and why the House Republican legislation will harm Detroit’s children. In this video, Rep. Gay-Dagnogo shares her experiences with DPS and pleads with legislators to take responsible action to save the district. Sadly, House Republicans didn’t listen. The package now goes to the Senate for consideration, and Michigan House Democrats will continue to fight for Detroit kids and their schools.
