Another teacher sick-out is being planned for today at multiple Detroit Public Schools, according to Equal Opportunity Now/By Any Means Necessary (EON/BAMN).
According to the group, teachers from Bow Elementary and Mason Elementary schools will take part in the sick-out and "build for the city-wide day of action to stop Snyder's plan aimed at destroying Detroit Public Schools."
EON/BAMN said the participating teachers will hold a rally at 12 p.m. at the Fisher Building followed by a march down Woodward Ave.
