Thank you, United States District Judge Stephen Murphy III, for declining to intervene in the Detroit school system

United States District Judge Stephen Murphy III dismissed an attempt to engineering a federal court intervention into Detroit public schools, finding their is no fundamental (federal) right to literacy under the Constitution. There has been a long history of federal judges turning bad situations into catastrophes through intervention and it is so heartening to see a federal judge say no.

Education is a power reserved to the several States and Michigan and Detroit need to fix their own ******* schools.

Undoubtedly, Detroit public schools are a cesspool, nobody in their right mind would deny that reality. However, it is ultimately up to Detroit and Michigan, not the federal judiciary, to fix the situation.

Hooray I guess?

You’d be more emphatic if you were familiar with the damage Federal Judges can wreak on a school system (and the community) when they put their minds to it. Again, very pleased that Murphy has chosen to refuse this foray into policy making.

It is the heart shaped button.

Like most things it can go either way. If it wasn’t for twenty years of federal court rulings, where would the public school system be?

this is what 20 years of federal involvement produced

Bumping, as another thread on this subject was posted.

When someone supports a judicial decision so patently contrary to the letter and spirit of so many laws, including the Constitution, I’d think the critic capable of better writing ability.

“Engineering” should be “engineer”.
“… dismissed an attempt to engineering a federal court intervention …”

“Their” should be “there”.
“… finding their is no fundamental (federal) right to literacy …”

Here you’ve incorrectly used a comma to join two sentences (an egregious error known as a comma splice).
“Detroit public schools are a cesspool, nobody in their right mind would deny that reality.”

Your first post on this board does little to enhance the quality of debate. Instead of debating the issues, you take a pointless cheap shot at me. Please try to do better than ad hominem attacks.

If you have an actual argument that is not an ad hominem attack, then state it.

Like a mule making work for the carpenter with his kicking ability…The grammar police have a role in making the work of others appear three keystrokes less than worthy to them.

Thanks Saff, your posts and opinion are always appreciated.
