A Better Winter: Advocates For Local Homeless Population Get Ready For Winter Operations

As daylight fades and temperatures drop, life gets more difficult for people experiencing homelessness in northern Michigan. This winter, though, that population will have more support than ever before. Between Safe Harbor, Goodwill Inn, Jubilee House, and Central United Methodist Church, there will be homeless shelter options available in Traverse City for what amounts to 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It’s a big improvement from last winter, when volunteer shortages forced shelters to cut hours, inadvertently triggering issues at Traverse Area District Library (TADL) and other community spaces.

Are State Education Policies Working Against Rural School Districts Like TCAPS?

Statewide education policy in Michigan is drastically underserving school districts in the state’s rural communities. Such is the big-picture conclusion of a report published last month by the Michigan State University (MSU) College of Education. The report, titled “Educational Opportunities and Community Development in Rural Michigan: A Roadmap for State Policy,” is the result of an extensive three-year study that involved detailed conversations with superintendents from 25 “diverse and geographically representative Michigan rural school districts.” The findings indicate that superintendents at many rural districts not only feel unsupported by state education policy, but in fact find that state policies are actively impeding their ability to deliver effective and high-quality education.
