See, We Told You So.

No fewer than a dozen warnings that this would happen ..repeatedly.

Scales just commented this grand disaster.

From the people who watch such things, we just wanted to remind you that the fix you thought was there? Wasn’t.  As reported in the Detroit News Detroit schools need mo money:

“Without state support to address its growing capital needs, Detroit’s public school system poses a potential threat to Detroit’s economic revitalization, Moody’s Investors Service said Tuesday.

The rating agency said for fiscal 2019, the Detroit Public Schools Community District has budgeted $9 million in capital expenses, out of a budget of roughly $760 million. Detroit’s school buildings have $500 million in capital needs and deferred maintenance.”

Disappointing, yet not altogether surprising.

Before giving anymore, perhaps Michigan’s investors actually look at who gets da money?

Anyhow, it never should have happened to begin with.

I have solutions for any of these school issues.  If anyone in the game really wants to fix it once and for all, feel free to reach out.  It would take a little courage, but the repair would last forever.

    ""Beyond and more important than a financial rating, our students deserve the same quality of buildings students in wealthier school districts offer their children. Our children are no different or less deserving than their children," he said.

    Any additional state money to the district should not be called a bailout, Vitti said.

    "(Bailout) refers to improper spending, accounting, or a deficit. The state ran the district without investing in its infrastructure," he said."

    Vitti must be hitting the crack pipe hard, if he really thinks that people are going to buy that line!

    If you can expend the resources to address superfluous, non-educational issues like what buildings are named, you have the resources to fix DPSCD's infrastructure.
