The Ann Arbor teachers union is refusing to hire any student teachers from Eastern Michigan University due to the college's involvement with with Michigan's Education Achievement Authority.
The EAA is a state school system tasked with improving consistently under-performing school districts. It currently runs 15 schools in Detroit and receives student teachers from EMU.
EAA opponents say it removes too much control from local government.
EMU's Head of Media Relations, Geoff Larcom says EMU has no intention of terminating its contract with the EAA.
Ann Arbor Public Schools will use almost one-point-two million dollars in reserves to balance next year's budget. as WEMU's Andrew Cluley reports, the School Board early this morning approved the district budget for the 2013-14 fiscal year.
