Michigan's Superintendent of Schools will be stepping down from his job.
Mike Flanagan, who has been in the post since May of 2005, has agreed with the State Board of Education that he will step down from his
post in July of 2015.
One source tells the Michigan Radio Network that it was time for a change, but Flanagan contends that a majority of the board wanted him to stay on, however he wanted to leave this year.
Instead, he reached an agreement with the board to stay on until July of 2015. A search committee is being formed to find a replacement.
