I'll say it again: YOu can run away from Detroit public schools but you cannot run away from your own misbehavior.
They disrepect Black teachers, throw toilet paper at them, disrupt learning environment in class then later run away to go being a minority in walled Lakes, Bloomfield Hills, etc.
Some people enjoy being a minority or remaining at the bottom of society.
When you see some detroit school officials saying " we let our kids down " one wonders where are those parents from. Not to acknowledge these kids let themselves down is the biggest mistake.
It it time the state makes military service a requirement for graduation in High school and middle schools. These kids need to spend at least one month every year with the michigan national Guard to learn something about discipline and other motal values.
you're a moron, i live in sterling heights & before here I lived on troy & the black students in the schools here & there are no diffrent than any other race...in fact, theyre actually showinf signs of being more intelligent than their counterparts...& when it comes to kids getting in trouble/being disrespectful in class, theyre usually young white boys

It's sad how dumb we all are! It's not a black or white issue, there's a brainwash issue! There is no such thing as race just the human race! I admit the people living in Detroit are really dropping the ball( grew up on the eastside) and we need to stop making excuses. But we want the same things white's, Asian's, Arab's, Latino's,etc... want! A better life for our families!!!!! Until we stop holding each other back nothings ever going to change. I feel sorry for raciest people cause y'all just don't get it and it's sad!

The blacks go to the suburbs to school and they are so stupid that they dumb down the whole school(just like they did to Detroit schools) they smell and they do not know how to speak,write or do everyday things...now their parents are to blame? Ever try to understand what they are saying...mumbo jumbo......send them all to a milatary school that may be the real answer

a better life for our families? Kai? What did you do to your city...look at the houses of the blacks that are in the suburbs blacks are disrespectful of any area they move into...just like the family across the street from me, everything was cool until all the unwanted granchildren and others moe grandparents and the whole neiborhood just isnt the same

It absolutely is A race thing. All one has to do is look at the crime stats. Blacks equal crime, the stats clearly demonstrate that.You want A better life for your colored brothers than pull up your saggy pants and do something about black crime and violence. No where in America are their any safe black neighborhoods, no where.

Race issue? Not really. I doubt any mother would take her children out of a school because her child might have friends of a different race. I live in the city, work in the city, but my children will NOT be taught by teachers who don't care, in an over crowded classroom with a curriculum that will not get them ready for college, surrounded by officers. Not exactly an enriching environment.

I can't agree more. When royal oak went to school of choice, we also noticed a lot issues in our schools that never existed before. I'm all for everyone trying to get the best education they can, but if the students are constantly interrupting class and starting fights and problems, are they really getting a better education?

Kids today don't want to learn they go to school to do drugs and have a social life. Theres nothing here for young adults to look forward to when they gradjate either except joining the military or leaving.

Maybe that's how it is in the trailer park where you live, but here in society, the kids are aspiring to become lawyers to defend people like you in court, and doctors to patch up losers like you that have drug overdoses. Ha-ha!!

You're not sneaky and you're not Pete. Unlike you and your family I have no criminal record. Go back to hating people for the cars they drive. Besides, you're from Clawson and not Traverse City.

Look if ghetto parents didn't enroll their kids in suburban schools we wouldn't have cool things like the urban dictionary.
