Elizabeth Birr Moje quoted by Bridge regarding NAEP results


SOE Dean Elizabeth Birr Moje was quoted in a Bridge article titled “On nation’s report card, Michigan students remain in back of class.” The article, authored by Ron French and Mike Wilkinson, focuses on the recently released scores and rankings of the National Assessment for Educational Progress. The results indicate that Michigan schools have made little progress in recent years.

While Michigan saw several small improvements in state rankings, scores still place Michigan schools in the bottom third of the nation. Moje urged policymakers to be cautious about celebrating a slight improvement in state rankings, and instead look at what can be learned from leading states such as Massachusetts.

Elizabeth Birr Moje is George Herbert Mead Collegiate Professor of Education and Arthur F. Thurnau Professor; Dean of the School of Education
