Unfortunately, even the graduates show little evidence of being educated.

My Sister was a teacher in the Detroit Public School system for over 20 years and according to what I've been told the fault for this shameful satistic is none other the the administration and staff of the Detroit Public Schools.
The community is to blame as much as the people who run the schools for allowing this to be done to their children in the name of education.

This suggests that we're simply not spending enough money on education.

Typical Liberal Response
