    DETROIT - State education officials have ordered the emergency financial manager for Detroit Public Schools to immediately implement a plan that balances the district's books by closing half its schools.

    The Detroit News says the financial restructuring plan will increase high school class sizes to 60 students and consolidate operations.

    Imagine teaching a high school class of 60 students. Good luck with that.

    60 students, most of whom don't want to be there in the first place.

    Yep. I've taught college classes with 120 students and nobody acted up because they were paying for the class. If they didn't want to be there, they just left. That's the problem with giving something away for free.

    Detroit is no better than Fallujah or Baghdad at this point. The Democrats destroyed that once great City a long time ago. There is no hope for Detroit at this point. They will be a Third World Wasteland for the foreseeable future. But hey,keep on voting Democrat Detroit. It's working out great for you guys. Yikes! :(
