Brain gain in Itasca County
February 14, 2013 by Blandin Foundation
Awhile back, we posted on research by Ben Winchester on rural brain gain. This fall, we asked Ben to take a look at brain gain in Itasca County — his findings, and a summary of his most recent brain gain research, is in our At Home report.
We then checked in with Lea Friesen, who has returned to the Itasca area and is raising her family here, to get her thoughts on Ben’s work. She provides an insightful perspective on the advantages and challenges of making the choice to live rural.
