At Detroit Cristo Rey High School, a student's enrollment is contingent upon working to support the school's bottom line in lieu of a five-figure tuition bill that would be out of reach for the school's low-income Hispanic and African American families. One day a week, students work in business across metro Detroit as part of their education. In this week's segment of Detroit Rising, the high school's president and CEO Michael Khoury discusses the program along with two Detroit business leaders who employ the students — Ed Mannino, chief financial officer of Strategic Staffing Solutions, and Sylvia Gucken of Ideal Group.
