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.
