But you have to start somewhere and the economic drivers have decided that the best way to turn the city around is to invest in the core downtown area with the hope that development spreads from there. If the city is able to create a core area that attracts socially and economically responsible people (which is happening) then you change the voting culture of the city. You change the expectations of constituents and that is what drives overall change, that is what ultimately "fixes" city council and the schools.

Without a change in the mentality and expectations of the constituents, there will be no saving Detroit. The last 30 years have proven that.
