Education task force

The Center for Michigan recently spoke with over 5,800 Michigan residents in Community Conversations focused on Michigan student success. This effort was designed to allow everyday residents of Michigan the opportunity to add their voices to the considerable education reform discussions underway in Lansing. The ideas and opinions of these Michigan residents are captured in the Center for Michigan’s report titled “THE PUBLIC’S AGENDA FOR PUBLIC EDUCATION: How Michigan citizens want to improve student learning.” (click here to download a PDF). The Center for Michigan is now seeking volunteers to join task forces to take the policy imperatives outlined in this report and put them into action. To sign up for one or more of these task forces, please visit

Members of these task forces will convene via conference call quarterly, and will be called upon to help bring about the policy changes prescribed by Michigan residents. These calls to action may include offering your testimony to legislative committees, writing letters to the editor, participating in social media campaigns, and much more.

If you have additional questions, please contact our Outreach Director, Amber Toth (

We look forward to working with you!
