DETROIT (AP) – Detroit Public Schools’ third emergency manager left the job with bonuses from the state totaling $50,000.

The Detroit Free Press reports the Michigan Department of Treasury gave Jack Martin the performance bonus in two payments – the first for $23,000 in 2013 and the second for $27,000 around the time he stepped down in mid-January from his 18-month job.
