Fredricka, I'm at the Cornerstone Schools here in Detroit.

弗雷德里卡,我现在正位于底特律的基石学校。

There are actually three of these institutions within Detroit, one independent—this one—and then there are two that are part of the public school system.

实际上在底特律有这样的三所机构,一家独立机构—就是这一家,然后有两家是公立学校体系的一部分。

But at all of these schools the students are excelling.

但是所有这些学校的学生们都非常优秀。

Virtually all of them go on to graduate high school.

几乎所有的学生们都能从高中毕业。

They test well above the grade average.

他们的测试成绩远远高于平均分数。

But they don't teach to test here.

但他们被教授不要在这里测试。

They actually have a very holistic approach to teaching—ethics, morals, very, very important, music and the arts.

他们实际上有一种非常全面的教学方法—伦理,道德,重中之重的是音乐和艺术。

In fact, beginning in kindergarten these kids begin learning Chinese.

事实上从幼儿园开始这些孩子就开始学习中文。

Can you believe that?

你能相信吗?

Now compare the situation here with what's going on at the Detroit public schools.

现在我们来对比一下在底特律公立学校正在发生的事情。

Only 58 percent of the students graduate high school.

只有58%的学生从高中毕业。

So Detroit today is announcing a big plan, shutting down more than 40 of its schools.

所以今天底特律宣布了一项很大的计划,即关闭超过40所学校。

It's all part of a program to revitalize Detroit schools.

这是所有振兴底特律学校项目的环节之一。

What they want to do is within five years boost their graduation rates.

他们所要做的是在五年之内提高毕业率。

Right now only 58 percent, as we said, are graduating high school.

现在当我们谈及高中毕业时只有58%。

They want to get that up to 98 percent. Very ambitious.

他们想要的是毕业率高达98%。看起来雄心勃勃。

They also want the students to test at the national average within five years.

他们还希望五年之内学生们的测试成绩能够达到全国平均水平。

They're a long way from that.

当然他们还有很长一段路要走。

What they are going to do is recruit top principals, recruit top teachers, but there's also another key component, something that is done here that's a key part of the success here at Cornerstone.

他们要做的是招募优秀的校长,优秀教师,但是还有另外一项非常关键,是要在这里完成,而且这在基石是一个重要的部分。

We say that you have a responsibility, too, not just the student.

我们要说的是你也有责任,而不单单是学生而已。

We expect you to be at parent teacher meetings.

我们希望你们能够参加家长会。

We expect you to see that a child's homework gets done.

我们希望你看到孩子完成家庭作业。

The parents have to play a key role.

家长必须发挥关键作用。

Educators say that is so, so important, and it is a major problem at some failing schools.

教育专家表示这是非常重要的, 而在一些失败的学校这是一个主要问题。

Not just parents but also over here they recruit people from the community, mentors, professionals in the community, who come to also meet with the children and encourage them and tell them exactly what they can become once they get out of school.

不只父母而且在这里他们从社区招募导师,专业人员来看望孩子们并鼓励他们,告诉他们一旦离开学校他们想要做的。
