Attendance plays a key factor in a student's success, but many children in Michigan are not making it to school. While there may be several reasons why a child is absent from school, having clean clothes to wear shouldn't be one of them.

If the bill is passed into law, firearms safety courses could be available to students in grades 6-12th. But, what exactly will the courses teach students and how will they earn credit?
