Detroit School Bailout Approved By Michigan Senate

On Tuesday the Michigan Senate approved a $715 million bailout package for the troubled Detroit Public Schools district. Now the package of bills must pass the state’s lower house. The bailout plan cannot be taken up by the lower house before it goes on recess on March 25th, but Steven Rhodes, a judge appointed by Governor Rick Snyder, has warned that by April 8th the DPS will not have money to pay teachers and staff, which would ultimately force him to close schools.
