Map: Detroit Public Schools 2005

IMG_1470

There are many more dots on this map than there are today. Around 2005 was a time of financial mismanagement, scandal, and an uptick in students leaving public schools. Four years later Governor Jennifer Granholm appointed Robert Bobb as Emergency Financial Manager for Detroit Public Schools.

The superintendent listed on the map, William Coleman III, was removed in 2007 after being indicted on charges of money laundering and bribery with millions of dollars in tech contracts at Dallas Public Schools. Most recently, he was involved in a 2016 Michigan Department of Education investigation of the charter, Detroit Community Schools for staffing unlicensed administrators.
