Detroit Today host Stephen Henderson is joined by Bridge Magazine education reporter Chastity Pratt Dawsey to discuss Mayor Mike Duggan’s State of the City speech. Duggan says he’d like to see the Detroit Public Schools returned to local control and come out from under control by the state-appointed emergency manager. DPS faces financial ruin without help from the state, though state lawmakers have yet to agree on a plan to bailout the floundering district.
