A new teacher-run school in the Motor City

As Detroit Public Schools manage crisis, one school moves toward teacher control. At Palmer Park Academy, Ed Week reports, the genesis of the changes occurred last summer, after a group of teachers at Palmer Park approached the district with the proposal to convert to a teacher-led arrangement, in which the school’s teachers take on the budgeting and management duties generally carried out by an administrator.
