The Urgency of Now: Michigan's Educational Recovery. 2021 State of Michigan Education Report
Education Trust-Midwest
This report calls upon Michigan's state leaders to quickly develop and implement solution-based approaches to both support the long-term recovery of student learning, as well as address the longstanding inequities and underperformance that have plagued Michigan's education system for decades. Building upon last year's recommendations, which called on leaders to create a Marshall Plan for public education amid this unprecedented moment, this report urges leaders to focus on six key areas: (1) fair investment; (2) honest information, transparency, and public reporting; (3) extended learning time; (4) quality virtual instruction and access; (5) inclusivity and socioemotional supports; and (6) transitions to postsecondary opportunities. The report also outlines the need for prioritizing early literacy efforts and developing a comprehensive plan around educator talent that places equity at the forefront.
