This article discussed how a fake university at Michigan was created just for ICE to arrest many people and deport them. It is very disgusting to lure students seeking an education that they could not get at their homeland, just for them to get arrested for wanting an education. And it is especially disappointing of the officials that are letting this happen in Michigan. What are your thoughts on this issue? Do you believe what they did was right or wrong? Could there have been something done differently?

This article is about a school district withholding grades for months which is against the law. I personally do not agree with the A-F grade system and think that students should not focus on getting a good grade but rather focus on how much they are learning. On the other hand the school should be held accountable. I am really interested in what others have to say about this Article. https://mobile.edweek.org/c.jsp?cid=25919951&bcid=25919951&rssid=25919941&item=http%3A%2F%2Fapi.edweek.org%2Fv1%2Few%2Findex.html%3Fuuid%3D401BD1E6-061D-11EA-88F3-8AF258D98AAA

Ann Arbor House Building Program Puts Students To Work

Samantha Rosenberg's picture

A construction company recently hired students to help them build homes. This initiative is part of the Ann Arbor Student Building Industry Program, where students from local high schools build houses from the group up over the course of a year. This program is providing students who are more comfortable doing hands-on work rather than schoolwork an opportunity to improve their skills and work towards a career in these industries. Students claim this has affected their career choices and have opened their eyes to opportunities they may have never thought of.

Flint’s Children Suffer in Class After Years of Drinking the Lead-Poisoned Water

Isabelle Mark's picture

In 2015, the state of Michigan presented a diagnosis of sorts. The article discusses a young boy Jaylon who had unpredicted behavior due to him drinking water and bathing in water that was saturated with led. Five years since Michigan switched Flint's water supply to the Flint River from Lake Huron which is contaminated with led—the led water crisis is spreading from homes to schools, as children are now experiencing behavioral problems in school. A lawsuit was enforced which pushed the state to create the $3 million Neurodevelopmental Center of Excellence, which began screening students.

The value of a University of Michigan degree

Lauren Orr's picture

This article discusses how much value there is in a University of Michigan degree. Researcher Jason Owen Smith collected data from hundreds of UM alums as part of a pilot project with the Census Bureau to help different education programs all over the country understand the importance of a college degree. The U of M is one of the three universities participating in this project— what do you all think of this project? In your opinion, how much value do you think we get from our University of Michigan degrees?

MI school bond results: Ann Arbor Approves $1B bond

Jeremy Block's picture

Ann Arbor schools were the  most amibitious in terms of investing in education, as 53% of votes approved of a $1-billion bond for building improvements in their education system. Ann Arbor residents were tired of paying frequently for short bonds, and wanted to finally invest in a long term plan to fix the infrastructure of their school system, including updating buildings and even constructing new ones. However, voters in Dearborn voted against the bill, mainly due to the large income tax increase it would create.

Ann Arbor Election

Isra Elshafei's picture

With the voting day coming up. I wanted to see what was being voted on this year. In Ann Arbor, I found that there is one proposal directly related to the Public Schools of Ann Arbor. In this proposal, it will borrow $1,000,000,000 to be used in equipping, refurnishing, and remodeling the schools. I know that Ann Arbor has had some struggles when it has even come to supplying schools. Do you think the distribution of this money is going to the "right" things? What benefit is there to the current designated distributions?

New $300 million U-M research and education center to anchor 14-acre Detroit Center for Innovation in the heart of Detroit

Samuel King's picture

Throughout the history of Detroit, repeated efforts have been made to pull it out of its own misery. However, now there is actual physical evidence of innovation and education improving in the city, thanks to a few wealthy individuals. Stephen Ross, along with other investors, recently introduced the Detroit Center to the public, which will be a 14 acre complex built by Comerica Park and Ford Field. The Detroit Centor for Innovation, or DCI, is a $300 million building that will help Detroit stay competitive in the fast growing world of technology and innovation.
