Back to School!

Friday, August 22 the Chamber hosted a panel discussion with Superintendents Dr. Daniel Nerad and Robert Glass to speak about future education in front of the Birmingham Bloomfield community. Some topics discussed were the depletion of funds, valuing teachers, and providing an enjoyable learning experience for students. Hometown Life published an article to recapture the event.

“Our community really supports public education, but we do have to address long-term funding issues so we can maintain the excellence we’ve enjoyed for all these years,” he said. “The outside challenge is the funding issue, and the inside challenge is continuing to find ways to help kids stay passionate about learning. How do we make learning fun? How do we keep them engaged? That’s the challenge” said Steve Scheidt, Birmingham Board of Education Member.
