Three years into his tenure, Detroit Public Schools emergency manager Robert Bobb has won control of its academics thanks to a new Michigan law that gives emergency managers control over more than just a distressed governmental unit’s finances.

Bobb won control after Wayne County Circuit Court Judge Wendy Baxter last week issued a stay of her own ruling that had given control of DPS’ academics to the school board, according to the Detroit News. The judge’s decision reflects the new state law and marks an end to a long fight between Bobb and the school board over academic control.
