Highland Park, Michigan, is a small town near Detroit. It's just three square miles, and once was a vibrant community and former home of Chrysler. Now they have 27% unemployment and more than 40% of the population is living below the poverty line.

Highland Park schools are performing even worse than neighboring Detroit public schools. It's so bad that they're being sued the ACLU.
