HFA: Elementary Featured in Daniel Howes' Detroit News Column

"A decade ago, a Michigan governor and a Detroit mayor conspired to spurn a $200 million investment from philanthropist Bob Thompson to build 15 public charter high schools in the city.

He moved ahead anyway, so far spending $110 million to realize a vision to provide solid education to thousands of young Detroiters. The latest manifestation — Henry Ford Academy: Elementary — is holding its grand opening today at the old Duane Doty Elementary School, an Arts & Crafts-style building built in 1908 in the upscale Boston-Edison neighborhood.

It won't be the last."
