Worthless high school education "earns" free college?-----Mayor to launch Detroit Promise registration for tuition-free community college

Mayor to launch Detroit Promise registration for tuition-free community college | MLive.com: "Students who graduate from any Detroit high school are being offered two-year scholarships covering community college tuition.
And Mayor Mike Duggan is officially launching the "Detroit Promise" registration process at 1:45 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 28 at Communication & Media Arts High School, 14771 Mansfield St.
More than 700 Detroit high school graduates from the class of 2016 are now attending community college or university after receiving the Detroit Promise funding, according to the mayor's office.
The Detroit Promise Zone Authority and Michigan Education Excellence Foundation oversee the program with funding through the Detroit Regional Chamber.
Detroit promises tuition-free community college to every high school graduate -- public, private or charter
Every student who graduates from any high school in Detroit — public, private or charter — was promised two years of funding for community college tuition on Tuesday.
In 2013, the Michigan Education Excellence Foundation launched a narrower version of the plan, and in March 2016, Duggan launched the Detroit Promise Zone Authority, dedicating a portion of tax dollars generated by that entity to fund two-year scholarships.
Applications for the funding are available here."
