I gotta buy a rental on the east end of Harper Woods. Hard to blame those folks though. If my choices were North, Harper High or Detroit, I'd get a rental in GPPS district too. I just worry about the quality of classes who have to try and catch up disadvantaged students without any financial help from outside the district. I get a little sick of paying double for everything while my kid waits for the next chapter to begin because the new kids cant read.
