By  | 

BENTON HARBOR, MI (AP) - A heated discussion occurred Wednesday night at Governor Gretchen Whitmer's town hall meeting in southwest Michigan.

People who showed up are not happy with the Governor Whitmer's plan to close schools in that area.

Governor Whitmer says closing Benton Harbor schools would help the district deal with financial and academic issues.

People who live there say they are frustrated.

Under the governor's proposed plan Benton Harbor students would be sent to other schools in Berrien County.
