Daniel Howes' Weekend Essay: On Marygrove College's next act.

Detroit News Columnist Daniel Howes and Michigan Radio are partners in weekly essays examining what's hot in Michigan business and politics – and what it all means. This week, Howes says tiny Marygrove College’s plan to partner with the Kresge Foundation and the University of Michigan’s School of Education to build a new model for public education in Detroit could be huge. Especially if the “cradle-to-career” concept, starting with an early childhood center and ending with graduate education, proves to be the necessary anchor for neighborhood redevelopment in a city hungry for just that.
