Otterstad, Ann Merete; Waterhouse, Ann-Hege Lorvik – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2016

Joy, Sunil – Education Trust-Midwest, 2017
In little more than a decade, Michigan has gone from being a fairly average state, to among the nation's bottom ten states in essential measures for student learning.
