Two dozen Detroit schools have been saved from forced closure after the district school board signed on to a deal with the state that will give Detroit the ultimate authority to control the future of the schools.

The schools had been identified for closure by the Michigan School Reform Office because they've ranked in the bottom academically for three straight years.

The 24 schools will also benefit from a partnership with four state universities that have signed on to help.
