Despite the important role played by our cities, they have troubles not faced by suburban and rural towns.
In a state that has some of the best education in the country, our cities struggle with massive achievement gaps. Although we have enormous wealth – our cities are home to thousands who live in poverty.
Today, Where We Live, we’re at
We’ll talk to the mayors about the issues affecting their residents during an economic crisis – when help is not coming from state or federal sources. We’ll discuss education and infrastructure improvements, the cultural and social lives of the cities, and their relationships with the surrounding suburbs.
