Aaron Brown and Chuck Marohn continue the conversation on education in this next episode. 

Most school districts in northern Minnesota find themselves in situations that involve their older buildings with failing infrastructure.  But where do the models for the future of schools come from?  How come most school districts have the same answer to their problems - leaving old buildings for larger, consolidated buildings on the edge of towns?  What COULD we do instead?

This month our Dig Deep topic is Education.  Many have suggested this topic, as school funding and consolidation has an effect on many in northern MN.
