Detroit's School Failure By Design! Why Urban Schools Are Failing And How To Fix Them!
by Roosevelt Williams
This book explains how Detroit earned its reputation as the worst public school system in the country. It is the story of one man’s attempt to teach his students traditional history in a Detroit classroom, and the District’s determination to stop him. Detroit officials disapproved of students reading the textbook, preparing outlines, lecturing and requiring students to work to pass the class.
