According to a new representative survey of Detroiters by the University of Michigan’s Detroit Metro Area Communities Study, residents say the quality of K-12 schools is their top priority for the November elections. The survey took place from June through August and received responses from 2,339 Detroiters. Of those surveyed, almost 77% of residents indicated the quality of K-12 schools should be a high priority for elected officials, with several other policy priorities that included inflation (75%), affordable health care (73%), affordable housing (73%), and crime (73%). Survey results were weighted to reflect the population of the city of Detroit.
