The purpose
The Purpose

Public education exists to preserve the democracy by providing equal opportunity for all individuals to maximize their potential and become educated, contributing members of their community and a global economy.

The non negotiables
The Non-Negotiables

Michigan’s Public Education System must:

  • Be fair and equitable for all students

  • Provide options designed for the needs of students rather than the needs of adults

  • Empower professional educators to assume responsibility for instructional leadership

  • Provide personal, learner-driven choice

Study and strategy teams
Study and Strategy Teams

The recommendations are separated into two sets:

  • Strategic actions: These eight recommendations target immediate and short-term reforms that contain actionable detail. These recommendations will be the basis for the work of one or more Strategy Team(s).

  • Study items: Five of the SSRC’s 13 recommendations target mid- to long-term system reforms that require support, information from multiple stakeholders, and much more research. These broadly stated, large-scale reform recommendations will be the basis for the work of a Study Team(s).
