Jamie Dimon is mad. He’s mad — like so many Americans — about the state of public education in many American cities. Especially in Detroit.
“This is probably one of the biggest disasters, Not just Detroit. A lot of inner city schools in America,” Dimon told CNNMoney in an exclusive interview in Detroit. “Americans should understand that 50%, or something like, of the kids in inner-city schools, often poor and often minority, don’t graduate. And the ones that do, don’t necessarily have the skills to get a job. That is the biggest disgrace in this country,” Dimon lamented. “We should be ringing an alarm bell on every hilltop and every mountain top and saying this shouldn’t be allowed.”
