A powerful coalition of city leaders says the warring factions need to start working together to solve Detroit’s educational crisis.
Last year, only 9.9 percent of third-graders passed the state English Language Arts exam.
“We’ve got sixth graders at a third-grade level,” Woods said. “We need to take it up a notch.”
“You are intentionally violating the law,” said Rep. Daniella Garcia
“How was your day in school?”

the Kellogg and Kresge foundations announced they would each spend $25 million…
“They’re the only ones who’ve been able to help me,”
“This is not about burgers and fries. This is about kids’ lives and kids’ dreams.”
Plans to close those schools were abandoned in the face of intense political opposition.
