Originally Broadcast 8/11/11Running Time: 60 min
The Education Achievement System (EAS) is a new statewide school system that will assume operation of the lowest 5 percent of performing schools in the state of Michigan, to transform them into stable, financially responsible public schools that provide the conditions, tools, resources, support and safe learning environment under which teachers can help students make significant academic gains. The system's initial operation will be in Detroit, where Detroit Public Schools (DPS) Emergency Manager Roy Roberts will create and publish criteria that will be used to place schools in the new district.
