Guess Which School District is Ranked Dead Last on Test Scores. Again!

It is not surprising that Detroit Public School students scored last nationwide on the NAEP (National Assessment of Educational Progress) test. Until recently, the district has not had consistent or strong leadership. There was not a consistent superintendent or an empowered school to lead the struggling schools.
