Controversy over EAA affecting College of Education

(04/22/15 12:59am)

While protesters shut down Board of Regents meetings and teachers’ unions boycott Eastern Michigan University student teachers, the College of Education’s faculty is putting all of its efforts into making sure students never miss out on an educational opportunity.“Our students are caught in the political crossfire in their last semester of teacher training,” said Barb Stafford, a university supervisor in the College of Education whose job is to find placements for student teachers.Stafford is just one of an entire team of faculty members in EMU’s College of Education whose day-to-day work has been affected by the university’s affiliation with the Education Achievement Authority of Michigan.Michigan Governor Rick Snyder created the EAA in June 2011 as a statewide school system for failing schools, however the authority has yet to move out of the Detroit area.
