Lansing–Today, Agustin V. Arbulu, Director of the Michigan Department of Civil Rights, issued the following statement on the passing of State Superintendent Brian Whiston.
"I had the privilege of working with Brian Whiston in response to the wave of bias incidents and hate speech that surged through Michigan schools in late 2016. He was committed to making schools safe for all students to learn and develop. We have lost a true champion for the rights of all children to a quality education free from discrimination, bullying and hate. Our deepest condolences to his family. He will be truly missed."
