Detroit Public School’s Restraining Order To Stop Protests Over School Conditions Has

Detroit Public School's Restraining Order To Stop Protests Over School Conditions Has Been Rejected | ThinkProgress

Quote:
The Michigan Court of Claims has denied Detroit Public Schools’ request for a temporary restraining order that was meant to stop teachers from calling in sick to protest poor school conditions.

Detroit Public Schools filed an emergency court motion for a restraining order and preliminary injunction Wednesday, January 21. The protests, or “sick-outs” as they are called, have been going on for weeks and have resulted in many school closures. On January 21, 88 of about a hundred schools were closed.

Judge Cynthia Stephens said she does not have enough information because there isn’t proof the teachers union, Detroit Federation of Teachers, urged this number of teachers to protest, but there is another hearing set for next month, according to the Detroit Free Press.

At the hearing, the attorneys representing the school district and teachers union will have a chance to submit briefs. The attorney for DPS, George Butler, claimed the strike is illegal under the Michigan Public Employment Relations Act. Detroit teachers are currently wearing red to signal unity during the sickouts.
Lack of funding has made public schools as broken down as our infrastructure. The only right course is for teachers to protest.

Make charter schools take in these children of poverty and those with special needs. Give the Detroit public schools back its money. I don't agree with your percentage of literacy rate, so I imagine you will back it up.

The state. They gave it to charter schools. What? No link to your assertion there is an 8% literacy rate?

The same Snyder appointed Emergency Manager that ruled Flint when it's citizens were poisoned with lead is the same fool now that Snyder appointed to take over the Detroit Public School System. This is not a coincidence.

Still lying about Snyder and the emergency manager. Tell eveyone when the Flint river decision was made and the month and year the emergency manager of the school was appointed to Flint.
