Detroit’s 47% Illiteracy Rate

“Our education system is broken: This study “shows the staggering degree to which public education has failed in one of the most economically depressed cities in the United States,” says Doug Mataconis at Outside the Beltway. And it’s “even more shocking” that half of the illiterate population “somehow made it through public school.” Clearly, “taxpayers aren’t getting their money’s worth.” It’s too bad that half of them “aren’t able to read the report to figure that out.”

“Study finds 47% of Detroit residents are functionally illiterate” from http://theweek.com/article/index/215055/detroits-shocking-47-percent-illiteracy-rate
