Parents pack onto bus tours to visit schools

Detroit Parent Network executive director Sharlonda Buckman said she was overwhelmed by the turnout to the bus tours offered last Thursday as a way for parents to shop for excellent schools.

Nearly 200 Detroit parents participated in the tours, which visited selected public, private and parochial schools that have proven to be excellent. Another round of bus tours is scheduled for May 13.
