The city of Detroit is a city with high levels of poverty.
The Detroit public school system has an emergency manager who has imposed a new contract.
This contract will allow class sizes in the upper grades (6-12) to rise to as many as 61.
In grades 4-5, class size might go as high as 46 before officials step in.
In K-3, class size might balloon to 41.
Remember, folks, this is called “education reform.”
I can think of better words to describe what is happening in Detroit.
It’s not about the children. And it’s not about education.
