CSG resolution supports
student-parent subsidies

Assembly wants
'U' to eliminate
restrictions on
childcare subsidies
Daily Staff Reporter
The Central Student Gov-
ernment's assembly meeting
last night was considerably
louder than previous meet-
ings because of the children
brought with graduate stu-
dents who addressed the
The group of graduate stu-
dents came to support a reso-
lution passed by the assembly
last night that will support the
removal of a requirement of a
limitation on childcare subsi-
dies provided to them by the
University. Currently there
is a restriction that requires
graduate students' spouses
to work or study a combined
20 hours per week to receive
childcare from the University.
The resolution also pledged
$35,000 to the implementa-
tion of program without this
Rackham student Katie Brion
came with her three sons and
spoke to the assembly about the
spousal work-study require-
"We saw it as a social equi-
ty issue," Brion said. "Even
though it's maybe a small num-
ber of students that are affect-
ed, we think they're affected in
a really disproportionate way."
Rackham student Dan-

iel Birchok also attended the
meetingwith his young daugh-
"The subsidy has been
incredibly important for me,"
Birchok said. "I wouldn't be as
close to finishing (my degree)
now as I am without (it), and I
wouldn't have been to teach as
well as I did last term because
you're pulled in so many direc-
tions (when you have chil-
Both Birchok and Brion had
access to the childcare subsi-
dies but said they knew other
student-parents that did not.
"The people who are least
able to absorb the costs on
their own are the ones that get
excluded," Birchok said.
A proposal to create a week-
ly news reportathat covers the
assembly was also passed last
night. LSA sophomore Tyler
Mesman, an LSA represen-
tative who co-authored the
proposal, said the report will
be sent to those interested
through a group e-mail.
"It's a great benefit to the
students so that they can really
be aware of what's going on in
the assembly," Mesman said.
"The students really should
know what's going on and
what matters affect them."
Another resolution pro-
posed would allow CSG to
appoint a representative for
the School of Music, Theatre
& Dance. Engineering repre-
sentative Zeid El-Kilani, co-
author of the resolution, said
because the School of Music,
Theatre & Dance doesn't have
a student government, it can-
not appoint its own represen-

"Currently they don't have
a student government," El-
Kilani said. "That absence is
two-folded. Right now they
pay $7.19 to the Central Stu-
dent Government and they
don't have representation on
that and then again they're
supposed to pay $1.50 for the
school (for a student govern-
El-Kilani added that Music,
Theatre & Dance students are
"losing.out on services and a
voice to the administration."
The assembly also proposed
a bill to award $1,775 to pay for
a bus to take students to the
U.S. 6th Circuit Court in Cin-
cinnati on March 7. On that
day, BAMN v. Regents of the
University of Michigan will be
reheard after being previously
appealed. This case concerns
the legality of Proposal 2, the
2006 amendment to the Michi-
gan Constitution that banned
the use of affirmative action in
the admissions process at pub-
lic universities.
LSA junior Ariam Abraham
came to the meeting in support
of the resolution. Abraham, a
member of eRACism - a Uni-
versity organization dedicated
to fighting racism on the Uni-
versity campus and advocating
for affirmative action - said
more than 80 students are
expected to attend this event.
"So many students have
expressed such a great inter-
est in being part of this move-
ment," Abraham said. "It
would be a great way to ... re-
energize social activism and

Additional charities are invited
to register race participants as an
independent fund-raising oppor-
tunity. At the meeting, Council
unanimously passed a resolution
to close the streets on the race's
Marathon organizer Michael
Highfield, founder of Champi-
ons for Charity said Council's
approval was the final step before
public event announcements
could be made.
Highfield said the approval
means updated details about the
marathon course will be released
online sometime today.
"We waited (to release an
updated course) until city coun-
cil approval because we tweaked
the course and the startingltime,"
Highfield said.
Highfield, an avid runner,
developed the idea for the mara-
thon after receiving a call from
his friend Ellie Serras, a leader
of the Main Street Area Associa-
tion, who thought Ann Arbor was
fit for a marathon because of its
status as a health-conscious com-
The marathon has a registra-
tion limit of 2,500 participants,
while a corresponding half-mar-
athon has a cap of 5,000 runners.
Abost 751 people from 26 differ-
ent states have already registered
for the race.
Highfield said he worked with
the cityto develop acourse incor-
porating some of Ann Arbor's
notable landmarks includ-
ing Michigan Stadium, Burton
Tower, the Law Quadrangle, Yost
Ice Arena, the Michigan Union
and the Matthaei Botanical Gar-
dens and Nichols Arboretum.
Wendy Correll, executive
director of Ann Arbor Public
Schools Educational Foundation,
said the event will help the orga-
nization reach its annual fund-
raising goal of $1 million.
"This is the third year we're
having a campaign to raise $1
million for Ann Arbor Public
Schools," Correll said. "I think
with the funding that will come
with the marathon we'll hit that
$1 million mark."
Correll said her organization
benefits educational programs in
Ann Arbor schools that are being
cut due to financial difficulties.
"In order to keep the AP class-

es...to provide adequate aademic
support for struggling students,
you've got to find funding some-
where because it's disappearing."
Correll said her foundation
would use funds raised to ensure
students at all Ann Arbor public
schools have equal opportunities.
"We can't fix inequity, but we
won't perpetuate it," Correll said,
"If there's a good program for
third-graders, every third-grader
in our district is goingto get it."
Correll said Council's compli-
ance with the city's marathon
requirements will help Ann
Arbor's public schools.
"In many cities across the
country, the cities are giving
money to schools for education
programs.'fhatmdoesn't happen
here, the economy doesn't allow
it, so this is one way they can sup-
port education without having to
fork over cash," Correll said.
She added that the event will
benefit Ann Arbor businesses as
"Right off the bat it was clear,
the Convention and Visitors
Bureau had to buy into this and
like it because if we have people
coming from 26 different states,
they are going to stay some-
where," Correll said.
Correll said she is hopeful the
event will becomes an annual
summer tradition in Ann Arbor.
"There will come a point five
or six years downthe road where
this will be a draw like the Art
Fair," she said.
