Eastern Michigan University won't renew its charter with an academy in Inkster when it expires in June.  The university says the decision not to renew Gaudior Academy's charter stems from concerns about the school's effectiveness as a public school academy.

Simmering faculty concerns about Eastern Michigan University's involvement with the Education Achievement Authority may bring additional focus to state concerns over the charter schools it authorizes. EMU is among 11 across the state at risk of losing its ability to authorize more charter school operations.


Legislation designed to give consolidating school districts in Michigan three years in which they don't have to worry about competition from new charter schools will not be considered this year.  Hear more from WEMU's Bob Eccles.
