Hah, what could possibly go wrong with closing down half their schools?
"Education Secretary Arne Duncan has called Detroit, where four out of 10 children don't graduate from high school, "arguably, the worst school district in the country." Hari Sreenivasan and Detroit Public Television report on how the city's public schools are tackling poor graduation rates."
I have a feeling most people who think teachers are so "high-demand" never went to university.. education is the major people go to after they don't get into B-school or their grades drop a bit too much to do engineering... oh and just outright idiots. I'd wager that you can easily pull a teacher that graduated from a tier 3 school to Detroit on 40k salary, plus $7k for healthcare and $4k for pension. You're being too kind to assume that bureaucrats even care to offer a market-rate salary (its not their money, why would they be responsible?). Worst that would happen is a counter offer, but you can always put out to a couple qualified individuals and see who bites.
As for their problems, Detroit needs to separate the juvenile detention from the public school system. I'm sure there are classrooms full of people yelling and throwing stuff. If you can't behave, you get separated from the well-mannered students, and that's that. Better yet, you get expelled from the whole school district for causing trouble the 2nd time if you're in 10th grade or higher (or is it 16 or older? whenever the state doesnt have to educate you any more).
