DETROIT (AP) — Bill Cosby and the Rev. Jesse Jackson are showing their support for the Detroit Public Schools.

The comedian and the activist were among a number of high-profile figures in downtown on Thursday for a back-to-school parade and Hart Plaza rally. They were joined by nationally syndicated radio host Rickey Smiley.

Hundreds of parents, teachers and students wearing blue “I’m In” student retention campaign T-shirts marched in the parade and participated in the rally.

It’s all part of a larger enrollment effort centered on new academic initiatives, including expanded time for reading and mathematics.

The district is hoping to meet a 77,314-student goal this year.
