Far from top ten in education, Michigan is falling further behind the rest of the nation

Michigan’s educational performance – already among the weakest in the U.S. – is falling further behind the nation. Michigan fourth-graders are now ranked 41st in the nation for fourth-grade reading levels, down from 28th in 2003 and 38th in 2013. If the state does not dramatically improve its educational practices and policies, new projections show Michigan will be ranked 48th by 2030.

We must take steps to systemically improve our K-12 education system using proven strategies from leading states across the country.

Join us as we call on state leaders to make the necessary changes to make Michigan a top ten education state!
