Michigan Schools to Close as Teachers Leave to Protest Right-to-Work


Two Michigan school districts will close Tuesday after hosts of teachers called out sick, apparently to join protests against efforts to pass right-to-work legislation in the state.

The school district superintendent in Taylor, MI, a Detroit suburb, said the district would not have enough teachers to fill the district’s classrooms, according to local news reports. The Taylor Federation of Teachers is reportedly helping to organize the protests.

A Taylor school official apparently told the district’s superintendent that teachers were calling in “sick” to head to Lansing for the protests.
