DPS Ordered to Pay Teachers Deducted Wages
Detroit teachers voted to deduct pay in 2009 to help the beleaguered school district remain afloat. The monies were to be paid back when the teacher left the district. DPS EFM Robert Bobb issued 5,466 lay-off notices this month, and four teachers filed a complaint to have the monies paid. EFM Bobb spokesmodel Steve Wasko said based on this judge's flawed analysis "the district would never be able to secure concessions ever." What the hell does that have to do with anything? The district will appeal the ruling. Who's paying for that - the laid-off teachers at about $8,000 per?
