News readers talk body cameras, charter schools

The bright side

Re: The Detroit News’ Aug. 24 Editorial, “In Detroit, body cameras a worthy investment”: The city of Detroit will eventually save hundreds of thousands when criminals can no longer play the lawsuit lottery.

Charter experiment failed

Re: The Detroit News’ Aug. 25 Editorial, “Michigan should cut back on school districts”: How about we stop allowing more charters that take away mostly the less expensive to educate elementary students? Public dollars are going to private business with no better outcomes. Charters were introduced as an incubator for new ideas. The only new idea has been underpaying staff and reaping profits where they can, in elementary and middle school.
