Education conversations reach Traverse area

The Center for Michigan, Bridge Magazine's parent and Michigan's very own "citizenship company," is engaged in a year-long series of community conversations on a vital topic to our state: the future of K-12 education.

Modern lives are busy, especially so for parents, but I urge you to take the opportunity to join a community conversation in your area. With our super-duper clicker technology, we collect hard data about voters' views to share with Michigan policy-makers. Your voice will be heard.

Check below to see where the CFM tour is next week. And, IMPORTANT, the first step to attending is to RSVP to Courtney Thompson, CFM's leader on community conversations, at
