The Detroit teachers’ union has urged teachers to return to work today after teacher sickouts over a funding shortfall shuttered nearly all of the district’s 97 schools for a second day Tuesday. The teachers called out after learning the district may not have the money to pay them at the end of the school year. But union officials say they have now received assurances the teachers will be paid. Detroit teachers have also protested black mold, rat infestations and other dire conditions in their schools.
