Class Sizes of 62--Detroit to Close 70 More Schools

Detroit’s financial manager, Robert Bobb, wants to close 70 more schools to help close the city’s $327 million budget deficit. Bobb said that the school closings will increase high school class sizes to an appalling 62 students per class. 60 schools have already been shut down over the past two years. The plan also calls for laying off 249 teachers and extends a plan that deducts $250 per period from teachers’ paychecks.
