Media Artifact due by 2-12; Two upcoming Town Hall Meetings

We have three items on the agenda today:

Town Hall Meetings

It’s not too late to sign up to hear Ruth Beier, an economist with the state's largest teachers union, speak with us about how school funding works (and doesn't work!) in Michigan. She’s a really good speaker, and her town hall will take place on Thursday, February 9th at 4:30 in 2327 School of Education. Sign up HERE.

We also expect a big turnout for our next Town Hall meeting on Tuesday the 14th with Sara Saylor from the Ginsburg Center (3 pm in 2327 School of Education). She’ll be talking about how we go from problems and emerging issues in communities across Michigan to the creation of legislation meant to address those issues—a perfect topic for MSC. Sign up for Sara’s Town Hall HERE.
