Detroit Files Title Vi Complaint Against State

Diane Ravitch's blog

The powerless elected school board of Detroit has filed a Title Vi complaint against Governor Rick Snyder for discrimination against the children of Detroit.

The complaint documents the failure of state control of the Detroit public schools. For most of the past 16 years, the district has been controlled by the state. Deficits have grown, enrollment has plummeted, and the public school system is nearly destroyed.

The bottom line is that the state did nothing that succeeded in providing the children of Detroit equality of educational opportunity.

Read the complaint. It documents a history of neglect, experimentation, and destruction. The children were the victims.
