Detroit school board class-action lawsuit maintains Governor Rick Snyder along with his financial managers have “damaged” Detroit students since 2011

Gov. Rick Snyder is a defendant in yet another lawsuit – this time, a federal lawsuit over the state of the Detroit Public Schools.

Members of Detroit’s elected school board and some parents filed the suit, which seeks class-action status on behalf of about 58,000 students who have attended DPS schools since 2011.
