Only 7% of Detroit Public-School 8th Graders Proficient in Reading

In the public schools in Detroit, Mich., according to the U.S. Department of Education, only 7 percent of the eighth graders are grade-level proficient or better in reading.

Some public school teachers in the City of Detroit and around the state of Michigan are reportedly taking a vacation or a sick day today to protest right-to-work legislation likely to be approved by the state legislature. Under current law, Michigan public school teachers must pay dues to the teachers’ union. If the right-to-work law is enacted, Michigan public-school teachers will be free to join the union and pay dues to it if they wish, but they will also be free not to join the union and not to pay it dues.

It's not just Detroit.
Harvard Study wrote:
Because rates of economic growth have a huge impact on the future well-being of the nation, there is a simple message: A country ignores the quality of its schools at its economic peril. Some would excuse the mediocre U.S. performance by claiming that it provides a more equal education to a much more diverse population than other countries do. It is claimed that test scores in the United States are lower than those in many other countries because they are not providing an education to all their students. That argument might have made some sense 50 or 75 years ago, but it is a seriously dated view of the world.

California got their lottery in 1978, just after I moved there, and the schools are in the worst financial shape they've ever been in.

Yes, the new union situation in MI is pretty incredible and I see more violence coming as a result of the new laws.
Detroit teachers: the teachers in those very low performing areas of study should be fired today. They obviously don't care whether the children learn or not and need to find another profession. Shame on them for neglecting their responsibilities and not caring about the futures of those children. I know there are kids who just refuse to learn but those figures are ridiculous.
