An "Authority" whose tales of utter mismanagement, waste of taxpayers resources, inability to keep students and appearance of being unable to educate children in Detroit, the EAA still manages to pay legendary bloated salaries.
Whatever happened to the Republican mantra of 'performance for results?'
It would be best to assume those words fall out the window when in an effort to balance financial statements to smooth over high stake Wall Street investors take precedence, before educating Michigan's next generation.
In light of the latest Michigan Appeals Court ruling on November 7, affirming the Conservative/Tea Party position that Michigan has zero responsibility to provide quality public education for the States' children, it would be make sense why flying circus show called the Educational Achievement Authority exist.
From the Michigan Citizen - November 14, 2014:
"A 2-1 decision reversed an earlier circuit court ruling that there is a “broad compelling state interest in the provision of an education to all children.”
“This ruling should outrage anyone who cares about our public education system,” said Kary L. Moss, executive director of the American Civil Liberties of Michigan. “The court washes its hands and absolves the state of any responsibility in a district that has failed and continues to fail its children.”
Conforme will earn more by the minute than Michigan's Governor, House or Senate Representatives, the Attorney General, Secretary of State, U.S. Congressional Representatives or the President of the United States.
For a State affectionately known as the "Model of Corruption", it appears the new style corruption has no bounds, even to the point of ensuring a quality, equal, public education is not found, in Michigan.
Detroit, the EAA and the EAA's Failed Results - by Carl S. Taylor
The 'chancellor' pay is an affront to all teachers, public educators with the salary and perks.
During these lean times with many good teachers losing benefits, lowering of salaries the Money Elite can give the previous Vice Lords (EAA) bodyguards, drivers, bonus on top of salaries that outrank the governor, mayors in the poorest big city in America?
Many folks applauded when public corruption brought Kwame to prison. Where is the same treatment for the EAA corruptors. Folks are paid large sums of taxpayers money or private unknown money to exist after helping their partners to the booty to correct public education.
