All but three of Detroit’s 97 schools stayed closed again today, the second day of teacher protests over their pay and the conditions for students in the city’s financially ailing school district.

The protests began on Monday, on Teacher Appreciation Day [ht: sm],

after Detroit Public Schools’ emergency manager Steven Rhodes announced in an email to teachers Friday that the city’s finances were so bad that it wouldn’t be able to make payroll after more than $48 million in state emergency aid runs out on June 30.

In addition, teachers have tweeted photos of stained ceilings, disgusting bathrooms, and inadequate student lunches.
