Education Achievement System getting results in Detroit

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (WJBK) -

 -- From the EAA web site -- The Education Achievement System is a new statewide school system that will operate the lowest performing 5 percent of schools in Michigan not achieving satisfactory results on a redesign plan or that are under an emergency manager.

It is designed to provide a new, stable, financially responsible set of public schools that create the conditions, supports, tools and resources under which teachers can help students make significant academic gains.

It will first apply to underperforming schools in Detroit in the 2012-2013 school year and then be expanded to cover the entire state.

Fox 2's Roop Raj went to Brenda Scott Elementary School in Detroit to see how the school is performing with this new program.
