Without aid, DPS may close half of its schools | detnews.com | The Detroit News

Quote:
Detroit Public Schools would close nearly half of its schools in the next two years, and increase high school class sizes to 62 by the following year, under a deficit-reduction plan filed with the state.

The plan, part of a monthly update Emergency Financial Manager Robert Bobb gives the Department of Education, was filed late Monday to provide insight into Bobb's progress in his attempt to slash a $327 million deficit in the district to zero over the next several years. Under it, the district would slim down from 142 schools now to 72 during 2012-13.
If I were living in Detroit, I'd get the hell out as fast as I can. Then again, dwelling in dollar a month houses in heavily blighted areas is mighty tempting.

Did anyone in the unions take a pay freeze?
Pitch in to pay for their benefits?
A minor cut to pension?

I'm betting no.

So they pull this stunt betting that the rest of America will be forced to pony up through taxes and keep the broken system going.
