Jennifer Chambers The Detroit News Published 2:38 PM EDT Sep 26, 2018 Detroit — A charter high school in Detroit will close its doors on Monday to students and staff, after its board voted Wednesday that it could not sustain financial operations due to low enrollment. Detroit’s Delta Preparatory Academy, which opened in 2014 near the Lodge and Mack, will stay open this week through Friday, according to Ron Rizzo, director of charter schools at Ferris State University, the school’s authorizer. Rizzo said the school remained opened on Wednesday. The board met at 8:30 a.m. and voted to cease operations and terminate the charter school contract effective Oct. 1.

Foreigners especially new arrivals often cite it as one of the most frustrating and bemusing aspects of living in France. You desperately need to post a letter, buy some medicine or visit your bank, but there you are standing in front of the "fermé" sign surprised that France seems to have shut down on the first day of the week. For French people, this is perfectly normal. Monday is for some a second Sunday and if shops are closed, well, it’s something you just have to get used to. In fact if it weren’t for the big retail stores and the American chains, the streets in many smaller French towns might seem very empty come the start of the week. But where does this tradition of closing on Mondays come from? The reason lies in France's enshrined labour code, the Code du Travail, which was first published in 1910. The Code du Travail used to say that it was illegal for anyone to work more that six … [Read more...] about Members’ Q&A: Why are so many shops in France closed on Mondays?
