To make Michigan a top ten education state, we’re going to have to double down on the strategies that are most effective for boosting student learning and the most reliable measures of success. Michigan needs to make major changes in K-12 policy and practice to improve outcomes for all students, particularly low-income students and children of color. We need leadership that supports a coherent, research-based agenda, and investment in what it will take to make this agenda happen. And we need better delivery systems of education, especially for our high-poverty schools and communities.
