The Michigan Coalition for High Student Standards is a group of organizations that supports high academic standards in public education. They were looking to create a site to allow constituents to contact their legislators and get info about the implementation of the Common Core State Standards in Michigan.
In addition, the organization was interested in boosting awareness of their cause and getting more organizations, including schools, involved in the fight for more rigorous academic standards.
And we were excited to help.
