Saving Detroit From Itself?

Detroit's schools get some money:
The debt-ridden Detroit Public Schools has been managed by the state for seven years, yet has continued to face plummeting enrollment, deficits and this year, teachers calling out sick in protests that closed numerous schools for several days.

“This marks a new day for Detroit families, with DPS free from debt and strong accountability measures for all schools in the city that promises a brighter future for all of Detroit’s children,” Republican Gov. Rick Snyder said in a written statement, nearly two weeks after the plan narrowly cleared the GOP-controlled Legislature.

Democrats, the teachers union and others opposed the plan, saying it won’t do enough for the district’s roughly 46,000 students and nearly 100 schools.
Because they did such a bang-up job before, right?
