In a story announcing a yearlong examination of declining educational assessments in Michigan, Bridge, the website of The Center for Michigan, quoted Elizabeth Moje on the urgency of school reform. The story detailed steadily declining eighth-grade reading and math scores in Michigan, and the need to find ways to reverse the decline.

Moje said, “We can’t afford to take our time getting back to good [academic] health. These children are our future. And every single day that a child isn’t learning in the most effective way is a day lost, and another day that chips away at that child’s eventual ability to contribute to the state.”
