Robert Bobb Pulls Out the Ax in Detroit

Former Oakland City Manager Robert Bobb, who is not known for shying away from controversy, is proposing to close 23 schools in Detroit and lay off 600 teachers. Bobb took over as financial czar of the troubled Detroit public school system earlier this year after almost returning to Oakland to become city administrator. Detroit schools have been hard hit by declining enrollment and the steep recession. Sound familiar?
