And this from Detroit…

Bobb (Emergency Manager of Detroit Public Schools) also plans to dismantle the public school board, the best advocates for schools like CFA. Elena Herrada, an appointed member of the Detroit Public School Board will be running for her seat in the fall regardless. She thinks that Bobb plans to convert the entire district into independent chartered institutions, even though charter schools have proven no better than public ones in Detroit

To her, the reason so many specialized schools are slated for closure is simple: “The charters don’t want special education, bilingual education, or any other specialty programs that can’t command much money or bring in uncertified teachers.” She feels such a “market model” approach to education in Detroit will be devastating not only for the city’s young people, but for local communities which have remained relatively stable around public schools. Boarding the schools up and forcing families to relocate could have dire consequences on already hard-pressed neighborhoods.
