Gov. Snyder proposes public school overhaul

Posted: Updated:

(12/04/12) - Governor Rick Snyder is backing a package of bills that would overhaul the state's education system.

The bills would create a statewide takeover district and give Michigan's Education Achievement Authority the power to expand beyond Detroit and include schools in the lowest performing 5-percent in the state.

Flushing Community Schools Superintendent Tim Stein is concerned the overhaul won't work.

He says lawmakers should look to other state's who've have had success with takeover districts, instead of creating its own untested model.

Educators say there is a push to get some of work done on the bills by year's end.
