Detroit Teachers Hold Sick-Out to Demand Fixes to School's "Abominable" Problems

Nadia Prupis, staff writer

Detroit teachers on Monday organized a "sick-out" to call attention to the school district's "abominable" problems, including filthy buildings and overwhelmingly large class sizes, and called on officials to follow through on long-held promises to salvage the city's educational system.

"Detroit kids matter!" teachers chanted at a rally Monday afternoon at the A.L. Holmes Elementary School, which they say is infested with mice and beset by structural problems, such as wet ceilings and broken entry steps.

Havent they figured it out yet..That Republicans dont give a big shit...They dont!...You think they go to bed weeping and crying over all the misery they over see concerning the poor and depressed areas of their city hahaha...Nah they just basicly dont give a fk..The sooner the locals realize that and start voting for change the worse it will get...The republicans are having a race to the bottom...To destroy established schools to make room for the new improved religious theology schools with brand new up dated christian versions of History, Math,Science...Of course the sience book is a bible..And most of the schools cater to mostly white kids..And of course it will be all about the profit ...It has become the new way to achieve segregation legally..
