Governor Snyder stood up for his Education Achievement Authority program after the State Senate left without voting to expand it.
A House bill would let the state take over up to 50 of the lowest-performing schools in the state, possibly including Eastern High School. The EAA currently runs 15 schools, which critics say is to small of a sample size.
At the Governor's education summit, Snyder talked to teachers from across the state about a number of topics, including how to make do with less money.
The Governor also called on educators to help connect students with skilled trade workers to reduce what he calls a "skills gap" in Michigan.
