Madge, who was born in the state, paid a visit to the Detroit Achievement Academy, which opened last year.

The school was founded by entrepreneur Kyle Smitley, who pulled in millions of dollars in donations to provide local kids with a "world-class" free education in a city which has been devastated by widespread unemployment and poverty in recent years.

In a post on Facebook, the legend uploaded two snaps showing her talking to kids on a colorful classroom mat, alongside the caption, "Sharing stories with kids at the Detroit Achievement Academy! Very impressed by Kyle Smitley and her team doing what they can to bring education back to the Motor City!"
