Weingarten: Layoff notices in Detroit are "shocking"

The American Federation of Teachers is criticizing the decision to send layoff notices to all Detroit public-school teachers. In a statement released Monday, AFT President Randi Weingarten describes the decision as "shocking," and says schools' emergency manager Robert Bobb has abandoned a pledge he made 16 months ago to collaborate with teachers on school improvement. Bobb has said he plans to modify union contracts and it's unclear how many teachers will be called back to work when the school year starts. Detroit Free Press (via Accomplished Teacher)
