We just need you to read English at a 4th grade level so we can graduate our students from high school. We don't care what else you speak or whether you talk to yourself for that matter.

well talking to myself would be a better more productive conversation then anyone could have talking to the miss mangers & administrators of Detroit.

With me in the dialog mix you would get an infusion of GNU management ideas, ways to correct the dysfunctional bloated union controled mess you now call Detroit.

Living in Detroit must be a lot like sailing and living on the titantic, then watching this once proud ship of state sinking and there is nothing people on board can do to prevent the ship from going down.

Out sider can see objectively & clearly what's wrong with da the city and needs to be changed for the city to survive as a city.

Throwing money at Detroit will not fix Detroit.
ya need to restructure from da ground up.

there ain't enough money on the planet to fix this dysfunctional mess.

remember that axiom from economics which states

what you tax you get less of what you subsidize you get more of.

now look around your city county state

We're only looking at making a positive contribution to the students at this time. You are welcomed to be a part of it. We just seek people to read the books to the children. That is the mission of this program.

lets play the game " Lets pretend"

Lets pretend the citizens of Detroit , democrat elected office holders, school administrators and the unions are as smart as they claim to be pretend know all the answers to all the questions.

If that is true why is Detroit such a dysfunctional fiscal mess?

one liberal party rule for 53 years has brought the city to where it is now.

What you tax you get less of what you subsidize you get more of.

Now look around the city, county and state.

53 years of one party & union domination of the Detroit economy has brought you to bankruptcy court.

the school in Detroit have been under achieving going backwards for many years.

Ya can't make a silk purse out of a pigs ear.

We're not about taxing anybody nor subsidizing anybody. The reading program is only that. I realize that some people are not able or interested in participating and that's their right. We will continue to move forward.
Thank you.
