More on Authorizer Accountability in Michigan

Eastern Michigan University’s Charter Schools Office Director Malverne Winborne weighs in on the recent report commissioned by the Michigan State Board of Education comparing the performance of authorizer portfolios across the state. Winborne claims that the report is flawed because it doesn’t account for the fact that even low-performing schools may be outperforming their local districts or that EMU purposefully seeks to charter schools in areas where students are already struggling.
