Defer Elementary School in Grosse Pointe Park. The Grosse Pointe Public Schools is thinking about charging tuition for students who live out of district.

Public schools in Bloomfield Hills and Birmingham are already charging tuition for students outside the district who want to attend. Now, because of budget cuts and declining enrollment, it looks like Grosse Pointe Public Schools might follow suit. This Week in Review, Weekend Edition host Rebecca Kruth and senior news analyst Jack Lessenberry talk about why the Grosse Pointe school board is looking at a $13,000 annual tuition fee for students who don't live in-district.

They also discuss why the Michigan Civil Rights Commission wants the U.S. Supreme Court to take up a case challenging the state's emergency manager law, another attempt to overhaul the state's auto insurance laws, and higher speed limits for some rural Michigan freeways.

Rebecca Kruth is the host of All Things Considered at Michigan Public. She also co-hosts Michigan Public's weekly language podcast That’s What They Say with English professor Anne Curzan.
