MAPSA loves to share the stories of successful and innovative charter schools around state – and you can’t get more innovative than the Henry Ford Academy in De...arborn. Watch this video to see charter school that’s located on the grounds of the top history museum in the country (the Henry Ford and Greenfield Village). The students don’t just learn about Rosa Parks and the Civil Rights movement - they take a few steps and actually see the bus that Rosa Parks rode in. How’s that for an innovative learning experience you won’t get anywhere else? The students don’t just study Thomas Edison and the Wright Brothers. They visit their actual laboratories and workshops. So, enjoy this video as you go behind the scenes at one of the most interesting, innovative and successful charter schools in Michigan. This is what innovation looks like. #celebratecharters
