Detroit Sick-Out Shuts Down 94 Schools

A massive teacher sick-out shut down 94 schools in Detroit on Monday as teachers protested Saturday’s news that the district won’t be able to pay them past June 30.

There are 97 schools in the district, which enrolls about 46,000 students.

The Detroit Federation of Teachers called for the mass sick-out of the district’s 2,600 teachers on Sunday. The Detroit Free Press reports that Detroit Public Schools Emergency Manager Judge Steven Rhodes told the union that unless that state Legislature approves sending more money to the district, teachers would not be able to be paid their already-earned salaries after June 30.

Summer school and extended special education services would also be canceled.

Check back for updates.
