Detroit’s elected school board has lost its bid to oust the district’s emergency manager immediately.
Board members voted to get rid of Jack Martin this week.
And they sued to enforce that, citing a portion of state law that allows elected officials to remove emergency managers after 18 months.
Martin hasn’t yet been in office for 18 months, but the Detroit Public Schools have been under some form of emergency manager for years.
The question is whether that 18-month limit applies to all emergency managers, or just individual appointees.
