2/18/16: Flint Water / Detroit East Riverfront Development / Charter School Report

Posted by MiWeek Editor on

On this next episode of MiWeek, the team takes a look at the stories making headlines across the state:

  • Flint Water – Governor Snyder discusses plans to replace water pipes in Flint, as we learn that residents had been playing the highest water rates in the country. Plus, how will this crisis impact the city’s already blighted neighborhoods and foreclosure rate?
  • Detroit East Riverfront Development – Christy interviews Detroit Riverfront Conservancy President & CEO Mark Wallace about the strategy to develop the East Riverfront District and the request for public input.
  • Charter School Report – The Education Trust-Midwest just released a report saying not much has changed with Charter School authorizers in regard to decision-making and schools’ performance. The MiWeek team analyzes the report and The Ed Trust’s recommendation for turning things around.
