The Michigan education department has approved a Detroit public schools plan to cut teachers' pay by 10 percent.

State Superintendent Mike Flanagan announced last week that he had signed off on the district's updated five-year deficit-elimination plan. The school system has a $127 million deficit. The pay cut will affect all teachers and administrators starting Oct. 1.

The state's Local Emergency Financial Assistance Loan Board approved a proposal by the district's emergency manager, Jack Martin, to borrow $111 million in state aid to pay its bills.
