School closure plan lacks student transportation option
from The Detroit News
A delayed plan to close up to 38 chronically struggling Michigan schools – many in Detroit and other high-poverty areas — would leave parents on their own to figure out how to get their children to recommended alternatives, some as far as 30 miles away. School Reform Officer Natasha Baker defended the controversial plan Thursday in testimony before a Michigan House panel, saying the state alerted parents in January to give them time to consider higher quality options for next school year. But it has not developed any transportation plan for students who could be forced out of their local school.
