MUSKEGON, Mich. (WOOD) — Students from Muskegon-area schools got to see the Michigan Supreme Court in action Wednesday.
Michigan’s high court went to Reeths-Puffer High school to present oral arguments in the case of the People vs. Mead. The event was part of the Court Community Connections program started by the Supreme Court.
Over 500 students from 12 local high schools got the chance to learn what happens in the courtroom and the details of the case.
“As teachers, we want to believe that when they’re in our classroom, they got the content. But when they can go and see a court case, the takeaway is going to be much greater if I just presented in class,” said Reeths-Puffer High School teacher Steve DeLong. “It’s a learning opportunity outside of the classroom, which is important.”
