A federal appeals court last week ruled that Detroit students have a right to a basic standard of education. That ruling allows a lawsuit filed by former students against the state to move forward. What could all this mean for students in Detroit?

Today on Stateside, we talk to Democratic Congresswoman Elissa Slotkin about the future of emergency funds for businesses impacted by COVID-19 . Plus, what a federal appeals court decision in the so-called “right to read” lawsuit means for students in Detroit.
