According to Ron French at Bridge Michigan, the “fight over grading Michigan schools on an A-to-F scale apparently isn’t over yet.” The Michigan Department of Education says it “will hold off on implementing the new accountability system because of concerns that parts of the system may violate” ESSA, according to Martin Ackley, Director of Policy and Governmental affairs for the department. The Michigan DOE plans to “ask newly elected Attorney General Dana Nessel for a legal review of the policy, passed by the GOP in the waning days of December’s lame duck session and signed into law by outgoing Republican Gov. Rick Snyder last week.”
