191. uh, excuse me, public schools did not traditionally enter into contracts
with private companies except for strictly delimited services -- not for the wholesale operation of EVERYTHING that made the school a school.

In Detroit, the contracting out of public school management is a development coincident with the rise of charter schools & one made by the same forces promoting charter schools -- i.e. privatizers.

In the case of Detroit, it was privatizer & "emergency financial director" Bob-Bobb who put all Detroit's schools under private management.

He was appointed in 2009 for the express purpose of privatizing education in the city, & that's precisely what he's done.
