Detroit schools a travesty

I don't know how much can be "hoped" for, but there will be at least some "changes." Just read this backwards - it's on a socialist website. (If they're complaining about it, it's probably a good thing.) The state is taking over responsibility for some of the worst-performing schools. Now, in theory, I'm not for "states" taking education out of the jurisdiction of "local districts." But GIVEN THE STATISTICS, this could be viewed, I guess, as the state taking children from their abusive parents. http://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2012/03/detr-m21.html
