Description

A legislative committee approved a $500 million plan Tuesday to restructure Detroit public schools. According to the Associated Press, most schools stayed closed for a second consecutive day after hundreds of teachers called out sick over concerns that they won't get paid if the district runs out of money. The proposal was passed by Michigan's House Appropriations Committee, mostly along party lines. The plan would retire the district's enormous debt and launch a new district.
