Detroit has been ordered to close half the city’s public schools and consolidate students as part of an emergency plan that would eliminate the district’s $327 million deficit by 2014. The plan also means that class sizes in Detroit will jump to 60 students per class.

60 kids per class???  Does this include primary classes?

Will teachers be given more planning time and compensation?

OH MY GOD. Having more than 18 of my kids yelling at me at once pushes me towards flipping out. I cannot imagine 60.  This is fucked. For real, teachers better be getting huge raise for that amount of added difficulty.
