Please be praying for Detroit Public Schools (DPS) this week. Today and yesterday it was all over the news that DPS was only going to be able to pay their teachers until June 30th.
With the teachers obviously being concerned about their financial needs more than 1,500 of the them have called in sick to protest. This has caused 94 of the 97 schools in DPS to have to close their doors temporarily. This is obviously a severe issue here. Education is an absolute priority for the youth of Detroit. Please join in with us in praying for DPS to be able to get back on their feet and also pray that the people making the choices for the future of DPS would consider the students education that is at stake.
For more information about the history of DPS please check out this report done by LOVELAND. It shows the history of the last 200 years or so of the district's rapid growth to the current state of being.
If you have anything that comes to you while praying please share it with us. We would love to know how God is moving in your heart for the schools here.
