A school in Westland is paying students 200 bucks for good grades. Does this program offer good incentive for kids or just put a band-aid over a systemic problem.

Joining us to debate was Richard Helppie, Founder of the Champions Program at Wayne Westland High. Also joining the debate was Shawn Blanchard, director of youth services of Detroit and Sabrina Jackson, "The People Expert."

And then, black businesses in Detroit say they are being left out of the city's rebirth. Are minority businesses being pushed out of downtown and midtown? and if so why?

Joining us to debate was former owner of 'The Tangerine Room' Darnell Small, Wayne State Professor Eric Smith and Zana Smith.
