The Detroit schools have just racked up the worst math test scores in the nation, and parents aren’t having it. Sharlonda Buckman, CEO of the Detroit Parent Network, is talking about jailing teachers now. Talk is all it is, because gross incompetence is no crime. But if the teachers go out on strike over pay cuts, I wouldn’t be surprised to see violence — not the good old fashioned goon-vs-scab kind, but parents vs. teachers. And Buckman is willing to start a homeschool movement, which would get the job done if parents manage to withhold property taxes.
