Editor's note: The Detroit News reports that Detroit Public Schools emergency manager Darnell Earley will leave the district Feb. 29, according to Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder. Earley has served as the manager of Detroit schools since January 2015, and the district has come under scrutiny as teachers protest potentially unsafe and and unsanitary conditions. Earley also served as the emergency manager of Flint in 2014, during which time the city switched its water supply from Lake Huron water to the Flint River. - Rebecca
