a PSC In The News reference

"Study ranks Michigan schools among lowest performing in the country" - WLNS. 02/02/2017.

Brian Jacob says that Michigan schools have been "quite disappointing in recent years" - with the lowest growth on NAEP test scores and academic performance of all 50 states. In a new report, Jacob talks about what the DoED can do to help low-performing states improve their public education systems.
