Michigan Protest

Alumni from Michigan's School for the Deaf plan show their opposition to the sale of the school to a private developer at the state house. The state would get $1.3 million for the 85 acre site and the developer would build a new school for the deaf and lease the site back to the state for 2 million dollars a year. A private school would also be built. Both state houses approved the deal, but an error in the senate's version has kept it from getting to the governor's desk for his signature.
