Michigan Education Achievement Authority loses students

DETROIT (WKZO) -- Michigan's Education Achievement Authority has reportedly lost close to a quarter of its students in the past year.

Data shows the EAA, a statewide district formed by Governor Rick Snyder in 2011 to take over failing schools, enrolled roughly three-thousand less K-through-12 students at its 15 schools than they did last fall.  A further breakdown shows the district's twelve directly run schools lost over 2,100 students and its charter schools lost just over 260 students.

The loss of students has raised questions about the EAA's future.  The district was created to turn around Michigan's lowest-performing schools.
