Governor Rick Snyder Reveals Plan To Rescue Detroit Public Schools
Governor Rick Snyder today (Mon.) outlined his plan to rescue
Detroit Public Schools from crushing debt and dismal academic results.
The proposal would split the district in two. A new body would oversee
education and normal school operations. The old DPS would exist only to
collect taxes and pay down debt.
But as Michigan Public Radio’s Jake Neher reports, the
governor faces what could be the toughest sales job of his tenure to try
to win legislative support for the plan.
