North Huron High School Ranked No. 1 Traditional School In Michigan

Part of a series on schools scoring highly on the Mackinac Center's 'Context and Performance' report card

In the Mackinac Center for Public Policy's 2012 High School Report Card, based on Context and Performance scores (CAP), the top conventional high school was North Huron High School in Kinde, Mich.

The report card measures schools on more of an "apples-to-apples" level by looking at student achievement while taking into account family income level. Socioeconomic status is universally held to be an important factor in student achievement.

Interviews with Kinde teachers and administrators show a school designed to provide individual support for student's career goals early on, as well as providing a crucial educational role throughout the community.

Renting out the family summer cottage is a common practice in Michigan, and with today’s technologies, it’s easier than ever, empowered by services like AirBnB, HomeAway, VRBO and more. These short-term rentals mean vacationers can find a place much more easily and inexpensively, while owners can earn some extra money. It seems like a win-win. Not everyone agrees. Some in the accommodations and tourism industries aren’t happy with the increased competition and are advocating for limiting people’s rights to rent out their homes. Some homeowner associations are pushing back as well. And while cities like Detroit and Grand Rapids have mostly embraced home sharing, some local governments have restricted and even banned the practice.
