Detroit Public School District Court Hearing Scheduled for Monday Over Teacher Sick-Outs

The Michigan court of claims will hold a hearing Monday on a lawsuit filed by the Detroit Public School District.

The District is suing the teachers union after teacher sick-outs have forced the district to close down schools several times this year.

The latest sick-outs happened earlier this month when 94 schools were closed after reports that the district might not have enough money to pay educators this summer.

State lawmakers are working on a plan to pay off the district’s debt which includes using $500 million or more in taxpayer money.
