Last Updated by MiWeek Editor on

Tonight on MiWeek:

  • PRESIDENTIAL RACE: Only nine weeks until Election Day, and Michigan is still getting a lot of attention in the Presidential race, as the Third Party candidates visit Detroit next week. The MiWeek team discusses the current status of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump's campaigns and the significance of their upcoming debates. 
  • DPS COMMUNITY DISTRICT:  There's a potential showdown looming over the right to close poor performing schools in the newly-created Detroit Public Schools Community District.  And State Attorney General Bill Schuette could eventually get involved.  Christy McDonald explains, and the MiWeek team debates the options.

  • LGBTQ POLICY VOTE:  The controversial LGBTQ policy guidelines for Michigan schools are coming up for a vote in the State Board of Education. The MiWeek team takes a closer look at what's at stake for LGBTQ students.

  • GOOD WEEK/BAD WEEK: Christy scours the headlines for a look at who had a good week and who had a bad week.
