Michigan, Republicans & Democracy
Friday night on the Rachel Maddow show there was a segment about a high school in Michigan called Catherine Ferguson Academy. Dedicated to the education of teenager girls who are pregnant or already mothers, the school has been put on a list of schools to be closed and taken over by a for-profit charter company. This after an emergency manager was given almost total control over the public school system. The situation is enraging on so many levels and in so many directions I almost don't know where to start, so I won't. I'll just link to the Maddow segment and let it do the talking.
