Since 2018, Central Michigan University’s Center for Charter Schools has hired The Learning Collective to be the sole external expert to serve on panels to evaluate new school applications across Michigan. Through early 2022 we have evaluated twelve of these new school applications.

Our work with Central Michigan University is one of three engagements in Michigan – our first was evaluating schools in Detroit. We also partnered with the National Charter Schools Institute on a project on behalf of the Michigan Department of Education.
