Clicking on today’s Current Comment link from the Mackinac Center homepage redirects readers to the new Michigan Education Digest. This week’s digest contains five stories highlighting some of the more interesting developments in the world of Michigan public and private education. Perhaps the most interesting, and disheartening, of this week’s stories highlights a recently released report concluding Michigan to have the lowest graduation rate for black males in the entire country. In fact, Detroit Public School graduates 1 in 5 of its black males and only 17% of its white males. Clearly, something is broken in the Detroit Public Schools, and widely embracing school choice is one of the only ways this situation will improve. Go ahead, though, and read the rest of the stories.
