Highland Park, Michigan, is a city rich with twentieth century history, from the automobile revolution of Henry Ford to the historic landmarks that early immigrants created in wake of the elusive and lucrative American Dream. However, Highland Park is a city today that is characterized by extreme poverty, unemployment, and crime. The City of Highland Park District project is a sociological approach to the study of a selected inner city district in the United States, which was the City of Highland Park, Michigan. This research study is comprised of two sections of detailed analysis regarding the effects of inner city impoverished conditions and lack of adequate State of Michigan funding that have both undermined the continued effort to make the City of Highland Park District successful by State of Michigan educational standards. The first section is based on the Highland Park City School District while the second section is based on Highland Park Community College.
