*Detroit schools to cut 470'
Jobs, shutter five facilities
The Michigan Daily - Friday, April 6, 2001-7
DETROIT (AP) - Detroit Public Schools will perma-
nently close five facilities and cut more than 470 jobs as
part of a restructuring plan expected to save the district
39.1 million over three years.
The plan, which also involves converting nine schools to
other uses and outsourcing 3,036 jobs, is the result of a $1I
million efficiency study.
The plan, which was announced yesterday, is designed to
help the district eliminate a projected $72 million deficit in
Schools CEO Kenneth Burnley emphasized the need for
immediate action to make the district both fiscally stable
and a better learning environment for its students.
"If things keep going this way, we'll be on a downward
spiral that's unprecedented," Burnley said yesterday. "If we
were a business we would be out of business."
He met with union leaders and administrators yesterday
morning to deliver the news, and planned another meeting
with union officials this morning to lay out more details.
Burnley said it's not known how many of the cut posi-
tions will result in layoffs. The district plans to eliminate the
positions over a period of two or three years, with an
unknown amount coming as retirements, attrition and trans-
No teachers were expected to lose their jobs because the
district was already short by 1,100 certified teachers. The
about 478 jobs to be eliminated are primarily among staff at
the Schools Center administration building. The outsourc-
ing will affect workers in facilities, engineering, custodial,..
food service, building repair and grounds departments.
*echnology used for election in
Detroit could be national model
WASHINGTON (AP) - Detroit
reduced the number of uncounted bal-
.jots by nearly two-thirds in the last pres-
dential election with new expensive
equipment, according to a congressional
case study released yesterday. Democ-
rats pointed to the city's successful
change from punch-card ballots to an
optical scan system as a national model.
-Detroit is the poorest major city in
the United States, and it has one of the
highest minority populations," said Rep.
Henry Waxman (D-Calif.), who
requested the study. "If Detroit can
reduce its undercount rate by two-thirds,
other areas can do it as well:'
In the 1996 election, 3.1 percent of
the presidential ballots cast in the city
were not counted. With the new equip-
ment in place in 2000, the figure
decreased to 1.1 percent, meaning that
6.,331 more presidential votes were
counted last year than in the previous
Gloria Williams, director of Detroit's
elections, showed Democrats on the
House Government Reform Committee
how the optical scanning machine
would reject a ballot onsite if the voter
selected too many candidates.

"You could sit there and listen to
those people offer comments on any-
body who was coming by," he said.
"You had this incredible flowing
description of who people were. If you
sat there long enough, you had a really
good insight into people in the town."
He described his reservation as
being very isolated.
"People were not quite aware of
how bad tetanus was," Deloria said.
"The other was polio. We had polio
epidemics all the time. We maybe lost
three or four classmates from polio
each summer. You learned what death
was very early."
Deloria said the World War I1 draft
and the addition of cars were the begin-
ning of health problems because many
reservation members left, ceremonies
depending on members of families
couldn't be performed and tribes start-
ed to mobilize and grow apart.
"All of these little communities
started to shrink," he said, adding that
the loss of community caused family
ties to be broken and a lack of respon-
sibility among older generations
towards younger generations. Since
adults felt less responsible, they
offered less health advice.
Deloria said the 1960s, when Amer-
ican Indians became eligible for
poverty grants, caused them to lose
their identities and be less dependent
on ancestors for identification. "Peo-
ple were adopting nicknames based on
the programs they were employed by,'
He attributed many problems to tihe
relocation of American Indians to
cities and said poor teachers and loss
of American Indian traditions led to
drug abuse and poor education.
"I think you've got drugs in prima-
ry and secondary schools because you
are driving kids crazy,' Deloria told an
audience member after his speech.
He proposed a new system in wbich
American Indians in seventh and
eighth grade would be sent to reserva-
tions to "learn to survive" and thengo
back to the school system.
"If you keep them in the classroom
and don't let them do the physical
things and don't give them freedom,
you are going to have some prob-
lems," he said.
Deloria said it is important that
American Indians rebuild their com-
"You've got to create common Indi-
an experiences. See what is left of the
community and become an active
member as a person, not as a profes-
sional," he added.
Students leaving the lecture said
Deloria's account of life on Indian
reservations was insightful.
"I thought it was really educational
as far as the affairs influencing Indian
reservations," said Art and Design
senior Jessica Zapotechne. "He
seemed really down to earth."
Sherman James, director of the
Center for Research on Ethnicity, Cul-
ture, and Health, said the lecture was
