Class sizes also would swell under proposal filed with the state
Detroit Public Schools would close nearly half of its schools in the next two years, and increase high school class sizes to 62 by the following year, under a deficit-reduction plan filed with the state.
The plan, part of a monthly update Emergency Financial Manager Robert Bobb gives the Department of Education, was filed late Monday to provide insight into Bobb's progress in his attempt to slash a $327 million deficit in the district to zero over the next several years. Under it, the district would slim down from 142 schools now to 72 during 2012-13.

I'm sorry but your description of Michigan as a whole is utterly false. You are only describing Detroit and some parts of east michigan. West Michigan is full of rich people/conservatives and doing fine.Eric Prince just spent 10-20 million on his newly renovated Lake Macatawa mansion. And almost every rich person in Chicago summers over here as well. Not to mention the huge medical pot industry that has sprang up in less than a year. Thats just one step closer to industrial hemp production as far as I'm concerned. We export huge numbers of produce as well fruits. If we could stop the export of our water, we would be sitting pretty.
