Create a home library for your child

Set aside part of a bookcase for your child. Or, you could have him or her help decorate a box to keep things in. Fill it with a variety of reading materials:

  • Look for deals on used books and magazines at tag sales, thrift stores, and book swaps.
  • Also get a library card for your child so he or she can borrow books, magazines, and other materials for free. Get one for yourself, too! Visit together often.

Dearborn Public Schools High Level of Growth and Achievement Continues

The Mackinac Center for Public Policy has released a new Context and Performance Report Card ranking 2,261 elementary and middle schools across the state.

As quoted by the Mackinac Center, “Dearborn Public Schools deserves a notable mention, as they run five of the top 10 schools on this report card and seven of the top eight conventional schools statewide. The district’s Iris Becker Elementary was also ranked the number one school based on long-term performance.”

“Taking demographics into account when considering a school’s success is essential,” says Mackinac Center Director of Education Policy Ben DeGrow, who co-authored the study with Ronald Klingler. “Some students bring more challenges with them to the classroom and deserve recognition when they are beating the odds.”

The full report card and a searchable database is available at: https://www.mackinac.org/archives/2018/s2018-03.pdf
