Education

The Michigan Center for Educational Performance and Information (CEPI) coordinated the collection of education data for the State of Michigan. This data includes M-STEP test data, graduation, and drop out statistics. Through this data we report information related to both English Language Arts (ELA) and Math M-STEP testing that takes place during the 3rd grade, and graduation rate information. Data from CEPI is published for both traditional public schools and charter schools. The numbers that we report on the State of the Detroit Child from the tables below include both public and charter schools combined. If there are fewer than 10 observations, the information is suppressed for privacy reasons.
