“It is ludicrous to think that with any amount of effort, official of unofficial, even a tolerable school is possible in a neighborhood of such extreme instability. Good schools are impossible in any unstable neighborhoods with high pupil turnover rates, and this include unstable neighborhoods which also have good housing. ” -Jane Jacobs, The Death and Life of Great American Cities

Housing impacts all elements of communities, especially schooling. As the Detroit Public School “sick outs” continue in the face of teacher frustration at the shortcomings of DPS, its important to remember the root causes of why it is so hard to operate a good educational environment int this city. #keepdetroitathome
