LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Gov. Rick Snyder signed an executive order to create a new education commission charged with analyzing top performing schools and recommending changes to the state’s education system.

Snyder’s office has announced the 25-member 21st Century Education Commission Monday, after mentioning the plan in his January State of the State Address.

Snyder is supposed to appoint members to the commission from education, business, government and nonprofit organizations. Snyder’s office says the group will focus on how Michigan’s education system is organized, governed, funded and ultimately lauded for successful outcomes.

Snyder has said in a statement it will “enhance student achievement” and get students ready for their future careers.
