EAA positive for students, education system

I was happy to hear that high school students within the Education Achievement Authority will be given a more flexible schedule in the summers. High school students want to work for their own money, or in many cases they need to work to help support their families. It’s nice to see a school administration give more options to its students.

One of the best parts of the EAA is that they are listening to the community. For this reason, the EAA is a great solution for kids who have been stuck in failing Detroit Public Schools. I’m happy to see that the Legislators in Lansing are addressing the failing schools in Detroit and I support the plan to reform others in this state. When the status quo has failed the students in Michigan, drastic changes must occur to secure the educational future of our children.
