2002: Invest in early education through college scholarships

I promised to focus on creating an educational system that offered excellence to all children. My education priorities would have a familiar ring even today: First fix Michigan's looming budget problems; then invest in early childhood education; shrink class sizes; reform urban schools to meet new, higher standards; elevate the profession of teaching; give every child access to a college prep curriculum; hold college tuition down; and provide scholarships for all achieving children. Educational improvement was critical to holding and attracting good-paying jobs and restarting growth in our state.

Every child in Michigan takes a college-prep curriculum

In 2004 I'd appointed a bipartisan commission to design a road map for doubling the number of college graduates in Michigan. The commission published a detailed road map for reaching that goal. One of the most important of its 19 recommendations was making sure that every child in Michigan took a college prep curriculum. This would be the 1st step toward a far-reaching shift in public and individual attitudes toward education, the kind of change we absolutely required to compete in the 21st century.
