Governor Rick Snyder says the 15 Detroit schools being run by the state Educational Achievement Authority are already showing signs of improvement.

Debate over whether to drop a set of national school standards has stalled a bill to fund the Michigan Department of Education.

Republicans in the state Senate say it’s time to go back to the drawing board on a bill that would facilitate state takeovers of struggling schools.

A plan to change Michigan’s high school graduation requirements could be sent to the state House floor as early as next week.

The Snyder administration says an education work group is not seriously discussing a voucher-like system for public schools.
