Lessenberry: Michigan schools, MSU lawsuits, Flint water crisis
Michigan schools scored poorly in the latest National Assessment of Educational progress, which tracks math and reading skills in 4th and 8th graders. Detroit schools ranked the worst for student performance.
Michigan Radio's senior news analyst Jack Lessenberry shares the results that stand out to him with Morning Edition host Doug Tribou.
They also discuss criticism surrounding the appointment of former state Supreme Court justice Robert Young Jr. to oversee civil lawsuits against Michigan State University, ending bottled water distribution in Flint, and a set of bills that would require drivers licenses of temporary immigrants to show the end date of their legal status.
