Last Thursday, the Lansing School District and the city teachers’ union reached a new five-year contract agreement.  The deal cuts 87 full-time equivalent positions in art, music and physical education classes.  On Friday we spoke with school board president Guillermo Lopez.  He assured us that those particular curricula would continue in Lansing schools, but that the method of providing that instruction is going to be restructured.  After Mr. Lopez’s interview aired, Current State’s Kevin Lavery caught up with Patti Seidl, the president of the Lansing Schools Education Association, to hear the union’s perspective on the deal.
