John Wm. Covington, Ed. D. is Chancellor of Michigan's Education Achievement Authority (EAA), a new statewide school system designed to dramatically redesign public education in Michigan's lowest performing schools.
The system 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 will first apply to underperforming schools in Detroit in the 2012-13 school year and then be expanded to cover the entire state.
