Detroit Public School System Discovers 257 Zombie Teachers

The Detroit Public Schools System has 257 teachers that don’t actually do anything, aren’t on the payroll, but still get paid. The 257 ghosts were costing taxpayers almost a quarter of a million dollars every pay period. The Detroit schools are nearly $430 million in debt.

Related… More than 700 New York teachers are receiving full pay while awaiting the results of disciplinary hearings for infractions that range from lying to sexual misconduct to ‘allowing a child to wear a hat in a classroom.’ These eachers are not only paid their full salary – most earn $70,000 per year or more – they also continue to follow the school calendar for weekends, holidays and the summer break.
