In July 2003, the then governor and superintendent of Michigan asked Achieve to review the state's English language arts and math content expectations by comparing them to the best standards from other states and nations and providing recommendations for improvement. Achieve suggested concrete ways in which the state could improve the clarity, specificity, grade-to-grade progression and rigor of its standards.
