75% of michigan charters are run by private companies FOR PROFIT. I seriously doubt that Detroit is much different from the rest of the state; in fact, it's probably worse, since Detroit's administration is hand-in-glove with the privatizers & is turning public schools over to private corps any way they can:

"Last year Bobb put nearly every high school in the city under contract with private management groups; theres no indication hell stop there...Detroit voters will decide on a second $500 million bond measure later this year. If Bobb has his way, much of that will end up in private hands."
