DETROIT (WKZO) -- A report showing charges of over 240-thousand dollars for travel, gas and furniture by the Education Achievement Authority is drawing a lot of reaction.
The "Detroit News" obtained the charges for credit cards issued to E.A.A. Chancellor John Covington through Freedom of Information Act request. It shows 178-thousand dollars was spent on hotel and airfare to 36 cities between April 2012 and February of this year.
Critics say the money should have been spent on supplies that teacher were buying with their own money. EAA officials say all the charges were legitimate and none of the money was used for personal expenses.
