A state re­view team has de­clared De­troit in a state of fin­an­cial emer­gency, and Gov. Rick Snyder (R) is likely to ap­point an emer­gency man­ager to help the city avoid bank­ruptcy. (De­troit News)

De­troit News ed­it­or­i­al­izes: “De­troit is on life sup­port, in polit­ic­al para­lys­is, and needs out­side help. The soon­er Snyder can send in an emer­gency man­ager to stop the bleed­ing, the bet­ter.”

MI AFL-CIO Pres. Karla Swift writes in De­troit News: “Two per­cent budget growth does not even be­gin to fill the gap­ing hole that is caus­ing a crisis in many of our over­crowded classrooms. In­stead of con­tinu­ing to set our pub­lic schools up for fail­ure, Snyder needs to re­store the full fund­ing that pre­pares our chil­dren for em­ploy­ment and for life.”
