State to fund smaller high schools

The News:

Gov. Jennifer Granholm will propose in her State of the State address Tuesday a plan to spend $300 million on as many as 100 smaller, more personalized high schools to replace larger schools whose students are doing poorly and have high dropout rates.
Detroit, which has ten high schools with an enrollment of more than 2,000 students, will be a major target of the proposal.
