State superintendent calls on Detroit teachers to end “sickout” protests | from Michigan Radio

Michigan’s education chief is urging teachers in the state’s largest district to end a recent series of “sickout” protests. 

 

“Nicole Conaway, a sickout organizer and high school teacher at East English Village Preparatory Academy on Detroit’s East Side, says she does not expect the protests to stop now.

‘If there wasn’t these actions, (Whiston) wouldn’t be holding that meeting. So that’s why we have to continue these actions,’ said Conaway.

‘This is what’s required to have some direct democracy, and we’re not stopping until we have a full victory – and that would be the full restoration of Detroit Public Schools to local control.’”
