Detroit In the News

Teach for America May Return to Detroit!  TFA places college grads who don't have teaching degrees in inner city school districts.  They came to Detroit for two years back in the early 2000s.  The amazing thing is that tfa is designed to serve poor urban schools, and they had to leave Detroit because it was too bad here.  Very few of the teachers lasted.

A Possible End to a Favorite 'Ruin.'  Previously I wrote about exploring the Packard plant, which has been empty for 40+ years.  Now, investors are looking into using the building once more!  Between blowing it up for Transformers 3 and retooling it to manufacture new green energy vehicles, I'd vote for the latter.
