School Board’s transition team is preparing for the future of DPS

Sunday, the Detroit News kicked more dirt on the Detroit Board of Education with the editorial “Detroit school board is wasting time”. The Detroit School Board is not wasting time, the volunteers from the city are not wasting their time and the DPS staff working daily to fix our public school system isn’t wasting their time. Unlike the Detroit News, the residents of Detroit have a stake in their public education system. We agreed to a $500 million millage to improve our public schools, our road to improving our schools and its system hasn’t been easy, however it’s too early to call the curtain on the Detroit School Board or its transition committee.
