    If this means a chance to mix up demographics and make kids aware of the opportunities that the more wealthy districts have and they get to take part in all of these options then I would be for a merger even if the Detroit school district no longer existed.

    •  They'll never go for that, of course. (2+ / 0-)

      It was just my way of saying there are, at least in theory, options that would be better than keeping something called the Detroit Public Schools or whatever they're called.

        promoting metropolitan government but nobody wants to give up their little bit of power. There is one first ring suburb nearby that contains five (5!) school districts in the same town and they have yet to be able to get agreement on consolidation for one town. Regionalism is an uphill battle.

        Where are we going and what am I doing in this handbasket?
