Decrying State’s “Systemic and Deliberate Failure,” Detroit Students Demand Constitutional Right to Literacy

Ho hum… another State that favors deregulated charter schools for poor children…. another lawsuit for equity… another decade or so before anything transpires… MAYBE someone will see how many of these cases there are and do something about it… 

A group of students at some of Detroit’s lowest performing schools have taken sharp aim at the state of Michigan, filing a lawsuit in federal court on Tuesday that accuses Gov. Rick Snyder and other state officials of “disinvestment in and deliberate indifference” to the schools, thus robbing the youth of their constitutional right to “the most basic building block of education: literacy.”
