Michigan takes new approach in closing failing schools
Michigan’s School Reform Office has warned failing schools that they could be shut down by next June – more than 100 of them.
Using recent state exam scores as their metric, the office will inform each school by the end of 2016 if their doors will close.
Einhorn joined us to explain the new behavior from the School Reform Office and what it means for a failing school’s community.
