Fierce advocates for the high academic achievement of all students – particularly those of color and living in poverty.

Equity-Driven Data-Centered Student-Focused

The Education Trust-Midwest is a statewide education policy and advocacy organization focused first and foremost on doing what is right for Michigan children. Although many organizations speak up for the adults employed by schools and colleges, we speak up for students, especially those whose needs and potential are often overlooked.

Ed Trust-Midwest is affiliated with the national organization, The Education Trust, based in Washington, D.C. Opened in Michigan in 2010, Ed Trust-Midwest is the second state office of the Ed Trust. The first, Ed Trust-West, is in California.
