Actress Reagan Gomez and her daughter Scarlett watch Captain EO at Disneyland.
This morning, Reagan woke up to news that more than forty Detroit public schools will be closed in June of 2011. Robert Bobb, Detroit’s Financial Manager, says the decision is due to the shrinking student population and ineffective teachers.
Many parents, including the actress, are outraged.
“The teachers are not the problem! Obviously, there are bad teachers. But they’re the scapegoat instead of the [messed] up system, lack of money, politicians who ignore the problem, and uninvolved parents add to the problem. Everyone wants to blame the teachers. [But how can teachers teach when there is] no heat/no ac, 45 kids to teach, kids don’t have books, no involved parent. How are u supposed to teach?,” demands Reagan.
