State to End Exclusive Contract with Education Achievement Authority

Lead in text: 
The achievement authority, founded three years ago, oversees failing schools in the state that don’t seem to be improving.
State Superintendent Mike Flanagan has notified the Education Achievement Authority - the controversial system for the worst-performing schools in the state - that he will terminate an exclusive contract the authority has with the Michigan Department of Education. The termination will be effective Feb. 18, 2015.
