With Detroit Public Schools students set to head back to class in less than a month, serious questions linger regarding the district’s teachers.
The district’s emergency manager, Roy Roberts, imposed new contract terms on teachers last month.
That infuriated teachers and their union leaders, who said the district never even collectively bargained with them.
But those new terms are now null and void, argues Keith Johnson, President of the Detroit Federation of Teachers. He says now that the law has been suspended, Roberts’ “authority” is suspended, too.
