Detroit is still America's crime capital; bottom in reading and math

Eight Mile Road in Detroit
Many people shook their heads in horrified disbelief when I told them I vacationed in Detroit this summer. I guess its because that according to Forbes, based upon violent crime statistics including murder, Michigan's largest city remains America's crime capital.

That's not the only bad news the Motor City received this week. Students at Detroit Public Schools have the lowest reading and math scores of any big city school district.

Criminal activity, not of the violent sort, extends into the administration of DPS, as you will read below.
