As the assault on public education continues in Michigan, those of us who live outside the state need a guide to follow the maneuvers of the anti-public education forces.
A reader in Michigan connected me to this site, Electablog, where I discovered the latest ploy
Voters in Michigan repealed Public Act 4, which authorized the governor to appoint an emergency manager for fiscally stressed districts. These managers had dictatorial powers, overriding locally elected governments. In three districts, the emergency managers were in process of replacing public schools with privatization.
According to this blog, the repeal also nullified an earlier law that preceded PA 4. But the judge decided that the repeal left the earlier law undisturbed. So while the voters rejected the emergency manager concept, their votes did not actually end the emergency manager concept.
The judge said the repel means nothing. Got it?
