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

It builds the foundation for doing well in school – and in life.
- Reading helps us in many ways. For example, we use it:
- in school – to learn about everything from history to math;
- at home – to follow recipes or keep up on news, and for entertainment;
- at work – to follow directions, communicate with coworkers and more.
Being a strong reader opens doors in all of these areas.
