Lt. Gov. Brian Calley looks to be well on his way toward a gubernatorial run, and he's already separating himself from Gov. Rick Snyder on one issue -- the state's federally mandated education plan sent to U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos. Calley wants it returned to revisit provisions related to special education. The MIRS team explores this with guest Peter Spadafore of the Michigan Association of School Administrators (MASA).
Also, Spadafore talks about Senate Majority Leader Arlan Meekhof's interest in the revisiting old MPSERS debt. He talks off his MASA hat to talk about school bonding proposals and to give listeners a primer on who is running for what in the upcoming Lansing city elections. This and more in this week's edition.
