Fewer DPS Schools Closed Tuesday

Two dozen Detroit Public Schools closed Tuesday due to a high number of teacher absences. On Monday, the district closed more than 60 schools because teachers didn’t report for work. At a rally on Monday, many teachers complained of mold and rodents making them sick.
