“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” Nelson Mandela

When a loved is in school, many events can occur during their studies to change the world. There are state and federal laws which protect; students, parents, and school employees.

In Michigan our State and Public University have a special place in our state Constitution they are given special powers in many ways. However, this status is not unchecked power and State and Public Universities must comply with Federal, State, and their own policies.
