There's no longer a public school system in Muskegon Heights, Michigan

The so-called "Emergency Manager" has fired the staff, essentially closed the district, and is bidding education in Muskegon Heights out to charter schools.
Note that no one in this scenario answers to anyone locally. At all.
See Ravitch on this here.

This is Gov. Rick Scott's legacy. I should elaborate, but I'm tired and I'm at work, and it would require a fair bit of googling.

I meant Rick Snyder, not Rick Scott. Maybe I'll have time to elaborate this weekend, but don't bet on it. :P

I thought you probably meant Gov. Snyder, but I didn't want to assume. He's certainly been on a privatization push.
