Detroit Schools Insolvency

Just some questions to stimulate thought about DPS and public schools in general:

1. Does anyone believe that Michigan taxpayers are not going to be on the hook for the financial mess that is DPS, just like we were for the City of Detroit?  

2. With all the other school districts reported to be in distress in the state, does anyone think that DPS is the end of this problem? Or only the beginning?

3. Does this looming crisis cause you to think that the way school districts are financed and run needs to change?  Or even more radically, should the way we organize and deliver education change?
