Map: Educational Achievement Authority Schools in Detroit

EAA-school-map2

The controversial Educational Achievement Authority (EAA) was established by Governor Snyder as a statewide school district for failing schools. However, the EAA only consists of Detroit Public Schools and has faced difficult legal, financial, and safety concerns through its operations. The most alarming fact that demonstrates that people are not happy with the program is that EAA schools have seen student enrollment drop drastically (24% drop in enrollment).

There doesn’t seem to be anything geographically significant within the city limits. There are notably no EAA schools near the Downtown/ Midtown areas of “revitalization.”
