3. Detroit schools rank terrible -- one article a bit ago said something
Edited on Tue Jun-10-08 12:08 AM by IdaBriggs
like 50% drop-out rate? Or was it 25%? Either way, it was shameful. You may want to check out a websitelike www.greatschools.com to find where you want to live. If you don't have kids, you probably only want to worry about resale value of your property (as neighborhoods with good schools command better prices).

ON EDIT: Here's the link -- http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/education/bal-md.co.sc...

And here's the money quote: "Detroit was the lowest-ranked large school system, with a 37.5 percent graduation rate."
