Center for Government Reform
The Center for Government Reform (CGR) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit research and education organization in Michigan that is "dedicated to researching and promoting best practices to improve government at all levels."
Their initial focus is on K-12 education reform, but in the future the organization will also work towards increasing governmental transparency and accountability.
MI school transparency
CGR's first project was MI School Transparency, a website which evaluates each school district in the state on 11 transparency principles. Grades are based upon what information is available on each district's website.
