Feds evaluating complaints made about Detroit Public Schools closures
from Detroit Free Press
The U.S. Department of Education is evaluating three complaints filed by Detroiters, some of whom claim funding cuts and school closures amount to discrimination against bilingual and special-education students. State Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Detroit, who represents southwest Detroit, filed a complaint in May alleging that the closure of Southwestern High School, where 44 percent of students have limited English proficiency, will affect students who traveled from all over the city to the school for language services.
