Passed 71 to 38 in the House on April 2, 2009, to allow Detroit to retain its “school district of the first class” until July 1, 2010, despite the fact that its pupil count has fallen below the level that defines this status. Detroit is the only such district, which among other things is a statutory device to prohibit an expansion of charter schools in the city.

House Roll Call 150 on 2009 House Bill 4047
Let's bend the rules some more for Detroit-as if they don't bend them enough themself. Isn't giving Detroit "special treatment"-in other words-kissing Detoits behind- one of the reasons Detroit is in it's plight? What next from their representatives-a bill making Kwame Kilpatrick Mayor for life?
NO NO NO NO !!!!
It is time to stop pouring money into Detroit Public Schools. We might as well flush it down the toilet or give it to AIG. At least then we'll know where it goes.
Detroit public schools is no different than the rest of the state that is losing students therefore they should get the same treatment. If you look at their record of corruption and waste, it's insane to continue funding it.
I aplaud the state for (finally) moving in to force change in the DPS finance division. I encourage and aplaud the efforts of the new financial manager - He's terrific already. However.. fiscal management does not mean throwing resources and money at it. it means fixing it !
