Robert Bobb wants to tear apart the Detroit Public Schools.
That much is obvious from the two choices he is about to present for addressing a budget deficit of 332 million dollars–much of which HE created.

This is not reform–it is reaction, moving us back to the early 1800s when there were no public schools!
