MI Charter Schools Want Peer Review

Lead in text: 
State School Superintendent Mike Flanagan has threatened to revoke the ability of some universities and other organizations to authorize charter schools unless they improve student achievement and business transparency.
A group of Michigan's charter school authorizers wants to establish a peer-review accreditation process that could help the Michigan Department of Education determine if they are doing a good job. The commission would evaluate any authorizer that voluntary joins on nine criteria and give it one of three grades - accredited, accredited with conditions or not accredited.
