Stateside: State of Opportunity looks at Stockbridge
The following is a summary of a previously recorded interview. To hear the complete segment, click the audio above.
All this week, Michigan Radio is airing a special series of reports exploring the schools and the educational opportunities in Stockbridge, Michigan. It's part of the “State of Opportunity” project.
Stockbridge is a village about mid-way between Ann Arbor and Lansing. Like so many towns and villages around Michigan, the economy has taken a beating, industry has gone, and the school system is one of the few ways kids from Stockbridge can get a leg up.
Cindy talked with Sarah Alvarez from the “State of Opportunity” team about what can be learned from this rural town, and its efforts to make sure its kids get a great education, even in the face of shrinking state aid and a tough economy.
The Stockbridge series of reports will air during Morning Edition and All Things Considered all this week. This is a part of Michigan Radio’s “State of Opportunity” project, looking at ways to break the cycle of poverty and build opportunities for Michigan’s most disadvantaged children.
State of Opportunity is funded by a great from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
