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.
