Setting an Example for the Children
This letter was sent Sunday by Detroit Public Schools board President Otis Mathis to his supporters, protesting that the Mark Twain school was closed in favor of the Boynton school.
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.
Based on the Free Press Map where it shows that the most of children who live in 48217 is near Gleason by the former Mark Twain. Why did Bobb think the larger numbers of our children would cross Fort St. to attend the Boynton school site calling it Mark Twain, make’s no sense unless the plan is to destroy the public schools that’s remained in our neighborhood.
Robert Bobb closed a building and a program that have passed AYP for many years, also slowed to almost a stop the college program which was being established at Mark Twain on Gleason.
When Bobb moved Mark Twain to Boynton, 48217 lose about 200 hundred students some of the student attended Mark Twain on Gleason came from out side the city of Detroit.
Bobb decision to move Mark Twain to the Boynton school site disrupted the college program, along with the lost of students.
Bobb is trying very hard to sell the more modern building Mark Twain on Glasson to a charter school, which will remove more of our student from a Detroit Public School, because majority of our students in 48217 live near Gleason as the Free Press has reported.
Mark Twain is one of the best schools in the district why is Bobb destroying this school?
We need to contact the media, all school board members, General Superintended of Detroit Public Schools Teresa Gueyser, your pastor and everyone, about this madness.
Shaking my head…
Sigh. Well, I guess the good news is that this isn’t the guy actually teaching kids in the classroom?
