Readers talk school choice, charter schools
Charters lack in quality
Re: The Detroit News’ August 20 Editorial, “Who should run Detroit’s schools?”: In Detroit, I haven’t seen the improvements that The News claims have been brought about by charter schools. The schools in the area are much worse than before the charterfest. When it comes to looking at testing, I haven’t seen the improvement in choices for parents meaning charters that perform at or above the best public schools levels, especially high schools.

I don’t know who should run Detroit Public Schools, but the current structure isn’t working. There are so many honest and competent people in Detroit, yet Detroiters elect corrupt people to run their city and schools. It will be interesting to see what Mayor Mike Duggan can do.
