SLIDESHOW: How Michigan schools boosted national ranking

After falling to the bottom of the rankings, Michigan student scores have held fairly steady as rankings of some states fell below Michigan’s.

See how Michigan did compared to other states, the national average as well as among different categories of students.

How very very sad that over 50% aare below grade level. The educational system is now run by progressives who obviously don't knowhow to teach. Just jerks who make jerks of students. When only 70% of students are in the classroom, even the best teachers can't do better and then a bad child takes over the classroom and everyone has to leave until he decides to be better. No discipline allowed. I am not surprised.
