Detroit schools seek volunteers to teach reading

DETROIT, Dec. 12, 2009 (AP): The Detroit Public Schools district is seeking volunteers to spend 100,000 hours teaching students to read.

Emergency Financial Manager Robert Bobb told the Detroit Parent Network on Saturday that he'll announce the new initiative on Monday in response to dismal test scores that recently were released.

Bobb says educators want to ``create a reading revolution'' in Detroit. The Detroit Free Press reports Bobb made the comments to the Detroit Parent Network's annual breakfast at the Westin Book Cadillac hotel.

Bobb has asked state officials to add academic control of the struggling district to his current duties.
