197. And that article was wrong
DTE does not own or operate a charter school. You posted misinformation.

As far as what is happening with DPS... you don't really know the whole story. Robert Bobb would not even be on the scene if the DPS had not mismanaged itself into the ground. And yes, later, a state-appointed "reform" school board me things even worse. But when the state overseers left, DPS went back to its old ways. So, the state came back and Bobb was appointed. But Bobb did not bring in the charter schools. They have been here for years. He did not create the DPS' financial crisis or the amazingly bad accounting practices that kept the DPS brass and the school board from realizing just how bad things were. Bob also was not responsible for the outright theft an naked corruption tolerated by the DPS for many years.

The charter schools are here because many, many parents do not want to subject their children to the DPS. For good reasons.

You really, really should visit Detroit some time and see what is really happening. Visit a charter school or two. Talk to some of the parents and the kids. See how many of them would be happy about it if the DPS was their only public-school option.
