Michigan education stakeholders met with state officials this week, including Superintendent Michael Flanagan. Discussions included toughening the oversight of the state’s charter schools. On Monday, Flanagan met with charter school authorizers.

He explained his previous warning to stop authorizations by authorizers that demonstrate poor oversight. On Wednesday, Flanagan continued discussions with a diverse group of education stakeholders.
