Internal issues put Michigan international charter school at risk


By Tom Gantert | Michigan Capitol Confidential

A dispute over the leadership at a Japanese charter public school has turned into a power struggle over who will run the program in the Livonia Public Schools.

Livonia Public Schools is the authorizer of Hinoki International School, but the school district now is moving to start its own Japanese magnet school in the same building used by Hinoki.

The Livonia Public Schools board of education is expected to vote on approval of its own Japanese magnet K-6 school at its meeting today. The school would begin in the 2014-15 school year.
