Education Trust-Midwest

Nonprofit or community organization

Last modified: December 18, 2014, 3:14 AM

Description

Our Mission

The Education Trust-Midwest works for the high academic achievement of all students at all levels, pre-kindergarten through college. Our goal is to close the gaps in opportunity and achievement for all children, particularly those from low-income families or who are African American, Latino or American Indian, in Michigan and beyond.

Who We Are

Ed Trust-Midwest is a state-wide education policy and advocacy organization focused first and foremost on doing what is right for Michigan children. Although many organizations speak up for the adults employed by schools and colleges, we speak up for students, especially those whose needs and potential are often overlooked. Ed Trust-Midwest is affiliated with the national organization, The Education Trust, based in Washington, D.C. Opened in Michigan in 2010, Ed Trust-Midwest is the second state office of the Ed Trust. The first -- Ed Trust-West -- is based in California.

Our Core Beliefs

  • We believe in the power of education to reinvent Michigan and the Midwest for the 21st century, and to close the gaps that separate low-income students and students of color from other young Americans.
  • We believe long-standing gaps in opportunity, achievement, and attainmenthave roots inside and outside of schools. And though we know these gaps are stubborn, we also know they are not inevitable.
  • We believe a strong education improves the lives of young people, is vital to sustaining our democracy, and strengthens America.
