Middle Cities Education Association History
In 1972, school districts in 8 core cities came together to form the Middle Cities Education Association. Under the leadership of the organization’s first executive director, Robert Muth, Middle Cities developed as an association, forming its task forces and many other unique advocacy and educational services for its members. In later years, Middle Cities recognized other ways that districts could cooperate, including pooling for insurance and energy.
As we progress into the 21st Century, Middle Cities looks forward to finding new and flexible ways to serve our members, thereby serving the urban learners of Michigan.
