In our April Dig Deep conversation, Aaron Brown talks about an assignment he gives to his students at Hibbing Community College. Identify what you think is one of the biggest social problems, and ways to solve it. Over the last 10 years there's a similar answer. "there's nothing to do in small towns!" Aaron and Chuck break it down.
Dig Deep continues the conversation this time moving into solutions for social problems. Students in Aaron Brown's Hibbing Community College classes have over the last 10 years always listed "there's nothing to do in this town" as one of the biggest problems. As Aaron explains here - building a new mall or new kids museum won't change issues of poverty and substance abuse.
Chuck poses the question for our podcast only edition of Dig Deep this month. Is there something special about small towns? Where people pull together? Do you cross groups and have more personal connections that make us more altruistic?
