More trouble for the Muskegon Heights Public School Academy.
The charter school's board announced yesterday they will let a contract with Atlanta based Mosaica Education expire. There had been a five year deal to manage the financially troubled school district for five years but losses see the overseers leaving after two.
WOOD TV spoke with Carolyn Neal, a retired kindergarten teacher who had 38 years with the former school district. She has a granddaughter in the system. "The Heights has nothing to offer these children, that's why they're all going to Muskegon, Mona Shores, Orchard View, what have you." Mosaica had lost significantly in their term of operation and the Public School Academy has twice turned to the State Department of Treasury this spring to make payroll."
Neal said she only wants the best for the children where she'd spent her career. "If I had money, millions of dollars I would invest it into Muskegon Heights Public Schools. We would open our district, we would take it back. That's all a wish."
