The Michigan Department of Education (MDE) Top 10 in 10 Years strategic plan states that MDE’s mission is to support learning and learners. The plan contains the following goals: (1) provide every child access to an aligned, high-quality P–20 system from early childhood to postsecondary attainment—through a multi-stakeholder collaboration with business and industry, labor, and higher education—to maximize lifetime learning and success, and (2) reduce the impact of high-risk factors, including poverty, and provide equitable resources to meet the needs of all students to ensure that they have access to quality educational opportunities. MDE recognizes that the need to ensure all learners are supported equitably requires addressing systemic inequities. Therefore, it has requested Great Lakes Comprehensive Center’s (GLCC’s) assistance in Year 7 to explore Michigan data to identify current disparities in student academic outcomes and to use research and evidence-based practices to develop recommendations for a state equity plan. The plan will help MDE address educational inequities. MDE's ultimate goal is to ensure students receive the instruction, interventions, and supports needed to graduate college and career ready.
