New Report Shows Michigan Students Falling Behind in Math & Reading

A new report finds Michigan's students are not making improvements when it comes to testing. The study conducted by a University of Michigan professor looked at scores from the "National Assessment of Education Progress." According to the Detroit News, it found Michigan students are at the bottom of the list when it comes to proficiency growth in key areas like math and reading. It shows Michigan students have continually made the least improvement nationally of scores. This latest report comes fewer than six months after another report found Michigan students are falling behind other students nationwide. Professor Brian Jacob blames lack of funding for schools as part of the reason.
