If you saw Sunday's Free Press that shown Robert Bobb the emergency financial manager for Detroit Public Schools, move Mark Twain to Boynton which have three times the number seats then students and was one of the reason's he gave for closing school to many empty seats.Wrong. It came from an e-mail from the President of the Detroit School Board, which directs the education of over 90,000 students.
And then there are the three out of four aspiring elementary teachers in Massachusetts who failed a basic math test last year.
And Texas teachers who fail certification exams multiple times and still get certified.
Oh, and then there is Illinois, where teachers can get into teacher certification programs by only getting 35 percent correct on basic skill tests.
Just in case you were wondering what was wrong with our schools.
