Calumet High School, in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, ranked first of all Michigan high school located in towns, and 8th best of more than 500 conventional high schools in the state, according to the Mackinac Center for Public Policy's 2012 High School Report Card, based on Context and Performance scores. 

The report card measures schools on more of an "apples-to-apples" level by looking at student achievement while also considering family income level. Socioeconomic status is universally held to be an important factor in student achievement.

The school's success is due to a combination of "a culture of hard work," growth-based assessments, and a technology-focus with recorded iPad lectures, mining and junior ROTC extra-curriculars.

The State of Michigan claims the tens of millions of dollars it spends each year advertising the tourism industry brings in needed tax dollars, but the industry fails to show the data. The Mackinac Center for Public Policy devised a study and found that for every dollar spent, only two cents comes back to the state, and only to a select segment of the tourism industry.
