Michigan Education 2015

Amber Arellano, Director of Ed Trust-Midwest, addressed the Club's January 14 meeting (presentation attached here; Q&A linked here.) about the Education Trust, a student-centered national organization that promotes high academic achievement for students at all levels, pre-K through college. Ed Trust-Midwest, its second state affiliate, is a nonpartisan research/advocacy center focused on what’s best for Michigan students. Her presentation shows how far we have fallen behind other states in student learning and offers lessons to make up lost ground by committing to, and investing in, a comprehensive education agenda incorporating proven, research-based practices, which also highlights data and research from the top-achieving (Massachusetts) and top-improving (Tennessee) states.
