Last week, the Board of Regents of Eastern Michigan University revisited their interlocal agreement with Gov. Rick Snyder’s failed experiment on Detroit school kids known as the Education Achievement Authority. They had agreed a year prior to reevaluate their participation in the partnership with the EAA based on their progress on four specific items:
- A stronger partnership is forged between Eastern Michigan University and the EAA
- Demonstrated student achievement and progress in EAA schools
- Fiscal accountability
- Complete transparency of all activities, including prompt and appropriate responses to requests made under the Freedom of Information Act
Analysis of the EAA’s success at meeting these goals showed that they had failed to make progress on ANY of them.
