Michigan Capitol Confidential: At least 26,000 children will miss school today because their teachers called in sick or took a vacation day to protest proposed right-to-work legislation, which is expected to pass today.
Warren Consolidated Schools, Taylor School District and Fitzgerald Public Schools are confirmed to be closed. It is also suggested that schools in Detroit and St. Johns may be missing a significant number of teachers.
Ben Lazarus is a school board member-elect for Warren Consolidated. He believes the district, but not the teachers, made the right call.
