Detroit — It’s a new day at Spain Elementary School.

And fifth-graders like Antonio Overstreet are feeling proud to walk the through the doors of the Midtown elementary school, once the poster child for everything that was wrong in the struggling school district.

Over the past several months, the district has spent $2 million to upgrade the school. A pipe under the playground no longer spews steam. The gym boasts a new roof, wood floors and fresh paint (talk show host Ellen DeGeneres donated $500,000 for that project last spring). Locker rooms have been cleaned and refurbished. New LED lighting has been installed throughout the building and glass at the main entrance has been replaced. ( – Shawn D. Lewis) Click here to read the complete story!
