What We Do

The Education Trust-Midwest (ETM) works for the high academic achievement of all Michigan students.

Our goal is to close the gaps in opportunity and achievement for all students, particularly students from low-income families, Black, Latino and Arab students, English Learners and students with disabilities. As a data-driven policy, research, advocacy and technical assistance organization, The Education Trust-Midwest, for more than 10 years, has worked alongside many partners at the state and local levels to improve opportunity gaps in Michigan’s public schools.

ETM is uniquely positioned to do this work, with a combination of high-level practitioner expertise; analytic capacity; expertise on research-based human capital strategies; expertise of our national office; and our partnerships with leading practitioners and nonprofits
around the country. ETM has expertise in data analysis and strong partnerships with cross-sector organizations, legislators, educators and diverse, bipartisan leaders across the state. In addition to our work in Michigan, ETM also leverages the expertise and capacity of The
Education Trust national office.

ETM also serves as a backbone organization to the Michigan Partnership for Equity and Opportunity (MPEO) (, a statewide coalition working to advance an equity agenda on Michigan public education’s most pressing structural challenges, including policy- and budget-related education issues for underserved students.
