Detroit schools plan avoided a worse fate for district


yeah The DPS Deal is incredibly important to
the future of Detroit and its children. The legislation gives detroit schools a slate. Before, nearly $1,100 per student had to be spent paying off debt. That’s money that never made it to the classroom. If we didn’t act, the state and DPS could have been on the hook for anywhere between two billion and three and a half billion dollars. With this legislation
education of the comeback city has been given it a fresh start. This $617 million package will help pay off debt, restore local control and make strong investments to better prepare Detroit’s kids for success in the 21st century. For more information visit
