LANSING—Senate Majority Leader Arlan Meekhof, R-West Olive, today issued the following statement regarding news of indictments for former and current Detroit Public School administrators:

“The alleged actions of former and current principals in Detroit Public Schools are unacceptable.  This is further evidence of the need for reform and oversight of the schools in Detroit.  I’ll be working with my colleagues in the House to strengthen the DPS legislation passed by the Senate in light of this development.  If proven true, adults are literally robbing children of an education. It is criminal and immoral.”
