Michigan housing market: Getting scary?

In Michigan, how does state rate in providing higher education?

How does Michigan rate in providing its kids with higher education?

Jack Lessenberry in his blog of Essays and Interviews looks at a state effort to examine that question.  The Cherry Commission, chaired by Lt. Gov. John Cherry, supposedly looked at the issue from all angles and made many recommendations for change.

In a radio interview, Lessenberry interviews Cherry about progress that has been made to give the state's children the education they need to succeed in a changing economy.  Cherry is optimistic.  Lessenberry says the optimism is fed election year political optimism of his boss, Gov. Jennifer Granholm.  He has a link to the audio interview, but Lessenberry doesn't provide a link to the Cherry Commission Report.

I would be anxious to see if parents, students and policy-makers agree that Michigan is making progress in getting our kids to college and then graduating them.
