In Michigan, ProPublica reports a 15-year-old Black student with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder has been jailed at a juvenile detention center in Detroit since May — after a judge ruled that she violated probation by failing to complete her high school coursework online. The teen has since been transferred to a long-term treatment program, where she will remain at least until a hearing review in September. Her jailing comes amid demands for the release of juvenile prisoners at risk of the coronavirus inside crowded detention centers.
