Covington Jumps Ship: Another Example of Gov. Snyder’s Failed EAA Experiment
LANSING — It was announced today that John Covington, the chancellor of the Education Achievement Authority, resigned from his position. This is the latest — and largest — piece of evidence that shows Gov. Rick Snyder’s educational experiment has failed.
“Dr. Covington’s resignation is further proof that the EAA is a failed experiment,” said Hugh Madden, communications director for Progress Michigan. “Gov. Snyder appointed Covington to run his unaccountable school district and now, as more information becomes available about the numerous financial controversies and questionable expenditures, Covington is jumping ship. It’s clear that this whole system lacks accountability to parents and taxpayers, as has been customary under the Snyder administration.”
