The Education Trust has opened a Michigan office in Ann Arbor, and has prepared a report, aimed at Governor Rick Snyder and the new legislature. The report, entitled, "Becoming a Leader in Education: An Agenda for Education," is available here.This report attends in particular to the gap in achievement between African American learners and Caucasian learners in the districts that have the largest populations of African American learners. The report argues that Michigan education broadly--K-12 and higher education--is in deep trouble.
