    COLLINSVILLE -- A special-education teacher has been removed from the classroom after allegedly forcing students to remove their underwear. According to a letter sent to parents earlier this week, the teacher observed feces on the classroom floor at Webster Elementary School on March 30. To determine which student had soiled his pants, the teacher had each child go into a private bathroom stall by himself, remove his underpants, put his clothes back on and exit the stall to show his underpants to the teacher. "The teacher was not present in the bathroom stall and at no time was your child...

    While many Michigan school districts have scoffed at merit pay for teachers, the urban school district with the worst academic performance in the nation has taken it seriously. The Detroit public school district has instituted a merit pay system that makes the vast majority of teachers eligible to earn awards, sometimes as much as $5,000. Out of 2,729 Detroit schoolteachers, 96 received awards of $1,000 in 2015-16, according to data from a Freedom of Information Act request. Michigan Capitol Confidential is reviewing the merit pay systems of the largest school districts in the state. Then-Gov. Jennifer Granholm signed a law...

    Pennfield Schools had just one teacher rated “ineffective” out of 124 within the Calhoun County district in 2014-15. And that ineffective teacher’s salary of $68,921 was the third-highest salary for a teacher in the district, according to documents received in a Freedom of Information Act request and the state database of teacher salaries. Teachers in Michigan are evaluated and are given one of four ratings. “Ineffective” is the worst rating. That teacher, whose name is being withheld from publication, is a good example of the problems with the union-negotiated one-size-fits-all pay scale that just about every district in the state...

    Michigan’s current superintendent of public instruction claimed in a news article that first-year teachers in the state earn $28,000 a year. Superintendent Brian Whiston made his comment in an article in the Feb. 10 edition of MIRS News. If any full-time Michigan public school teacher is paid that amount, it would be an extremely rare instance. There were 540 Michigan public school districts in 2015-16, not counting charter schools. Michigan Capitol Confidential has reviewed hundreds of those districts’ union contracts and has not yet seen a starting salary under $30,000. The Michigan Department of Education didn’t return an email that...
