Michigan State University President Lou Anna Simon is facing mounting pressure to resign over how the university handled complaints against former sports Dr. Larry Nassar. The full leadership of the state Legislature, MSU's student newspaper and MSU's student government have all called for her resignation. However, it doesn't look like Simon is going anywhere at the moment.

This Week in Review, Weekend Edition host Rebecca Kruth and senior news analyst Jack Lessenberry talk about what could be keeping Simon from stepping down.


They also discuss MSU's decision to allow white nationalist Richard Spencer to speak on campus, the first veto-override of Gov. Rick Snyder's tenure, a new report that pegs the cost of educating K-12 students in Michigan at nearly $2,000 more than the state's current base number, and why Detroit didn't make Amazon's short list of potential cities for its second headquarters.
