Charter School Authorizers Face Suspension in Michigan

Michigan's schools chief announced last week that 11 of the state's nearly 40 charter school authorizers are at risk of being suspended or having their power to open new schools revoked.

State Superintendent Mike Flanagan said the authorizers that were put on notice lack transparency, accountability, and fiscal governance, and their schools are among the lowest-performing in the state. Once suspended, authorizers would not be allowed to approve any new schools, but their current schools could stay open.

Among the authorizers facing suspension are the Detroit school district, Eastern Michigan University, Kellogg Community College, and the state-run Education Achievement Authority.
