According to a new report, 47 percent of Detroiters are ”functionally illiterate” (having reading and writing skills insufficient for ordinary daily practical needs). The alarming new statistics were released by the Detroit Regional Workforce Fund on Wednesday. See.... http://cbsdetroit.files.wordpress.com/2011/05/basicskillsreport_final.pdf

Detroiters are not able to fill out basic forms, for getting a job or not able to read a prescription of what is in the bottle, how many you should take… just your basic everyday tasks!

Detroiters compare, slightly higher, to Washington D.C.’s urban population, in certain ZIP codes in Washington D.C. and in Cleveland!

The report will be used to provide better training for local workers. Why should tax dollars be used twice to teach these functionally illiterate twice????

Make sure you support your local teacher union in their effort to rob you of more tax money!


Hope and change voters....do not forget to after you enjoy a  with obama Kool-Aid....sweetened with NutraHope!

Many people (that I know) are alive only because it’s illegal to shoot them.

Ronald Reagen said it best.......The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant, but that they know so much that isn’t so.

"You can ignore reality, but not the consequences of ignoring reality." Ayn Rand

The truly educated never graduate !

When the Going Gets Tough, the Tough Get Going. The Smart Left a Long Time Ago.

I have always said I don't care what you do or with whom you do it, but don't demand that I think that it is normal or that it is OK!!!!

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity!
how rude

Defining....Abracadabra … cursing censored
