EAA debate heats up in Lansing, final vote possible this week
Michigan Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville hopes to hold a final vote this week on a bill to expand the state's Education Achievement Authority (EAA).
The EAA is the entity the state uses to take over persistently failing schools. Right now, it runs 15 schools in Detroit. The bill would pave the way for it to expand up to 50 schools statewide.
Richardville, R-Monroe, says the EAA is not a perfect solution, but it's better than doing nothing.
