A report says Michigan needs 779,000 more residents with a post-secondary degree or certificate within 10 years to meet employer needs and join the ranks of best-educated states, a sizable increase from current levels.
Forty-six percent of citizens have degrees or certificates now.
The report issued Tuesday recommends 60 percent have a college degree, graduate degree or technical certificate by 2025.
The report comes from a workgroup of university leaders, business executives, lawmakers, Gov. Rick Snyder's office and others.
