Spalding Quoted in The Detroit News

Article highlights school choice in Detroit

The Detroit News quotes Audrey Spalding, director of education policy, on school choice in Detroit.

According to the article, 25,000 Detroit students have chosen to use school choice to attend schools in the suburban areas, with 17,000 of those students attending charters.

“The point of our public education system is to serve the kids. There are reasons kids and families are traveling so far away to go to another school,” Spalding said.

The Detroit Public Schools district seems to agree. A Detroit Public Schools spokesman said the district is working to improve its system in order to attract students and keep current students from leaving.
