Students test to attend top Detroit high schools

About 1,250 students who don't now attend the Detroit Public Schools are hoping to be admitted to the district's top high schools. Detroit has about 74,000 students, but attendance is expected to dip to 60,000 or less by 2014. About 60 schools have been closed over the past two years, partly due to declining enrollment and aging buildings.
