Last Updated by MiWeek Editor on

This week on MiWeek:

  • IRAQI DEPORTATIONS: In two special One Detroit reports, we look at the plight of two local Iraqi nationals who are facing possible deportation. 
  • DETROIT TEACHERS: The Detroit Public Schools Community District still has hundreds of teacher vacancies that it needs to fill for the start of school next month. The MiWeek team debates why it has been tough for the district to fill these vacancies and what it needs to do to attract teachers.
