Group Offers Plan to Boost Post High School Education

A group of educators and lawmakers are offering a plan to boost the number of Michiganders with a post high school education.

A new report by the Postsecondary Credential Attainment Workgroup says Michigan needs more than 779,000 more citizens with a postsecondary education, be that college degrees or technical or industry-recognized certificates, by 2025 to meet state employer needs.

To attain that goal the report suggests more high school counselors and college advisers, streamlining credit transfers from community colleges to four year universities and colleges, and increasing financial aid.

President of the Michigan Board of Education, John Austin, says the state should do what business leaders have suggested, spend $100 million more a year on colleges and universities so they don’t have to raise tuition.
