Adopting a common-enrollment system doesn’t make a single additional student eligible for admission to a charter school or change the fact that applicants are randomly assigned to seats, writes Marcus Winters. It just changes who collects the application forms.

It’s natural to be unsettled by change, but residents of San Francisco take resistance to change to absurd levels.
Celebrated for its openness, San Francisco has a hard time with change.

"So long as reformers are constitutionally prevented from curtailing union power in Illinois and Chicago, the pension crisis will continue to worsen," writes Aaron Renn at City Journal. "And, so long as it does, the financial environment in Chicagoland will deteriorate and people will keep leaving."

The mental illness mess is not being caused by lack of funding. Washington spent $147 billion on mental health in 2014. New York State spends almost $4 billion. But too much of the money winds up diverted from the seriously ill. D.J. Jaffe says pending new federal legislation would reduce waste by actually requiring programs to be evidence-based.

The Milwaukee Police Department was once among the most distinguished police forces in the country. During the 1960s though, the MPD began to face a deteriorating situation of soaring crime, poor relationships with minorities, and disgruntled cops. Has the MPD been able to reverse that downward spiral in more recent years? And if so how? What can other cities learn from MPD's history? Find out more in our latest ‪#‎podcast‬ episode.

History doesn’t repeat itself, an old adage holds, but it rhymes. So it’s not Nuremburg rallies or Hitler Youth leagues that we should worry about, writes Myron Magnet at City Journal, but rather the entropy of our beliefs and institutions.

Cities from Detroit to Newark to Cleveland never recovered their midcentury population peaks—even Boston, considered a successful city, is 19 percent below its 1950 population—but the Bronx is set to exceed its pre-1970s population soon. More working people live there today than ever before. Nicole Gelinas tells the story of a comeback in progress in the Winter issue of City Journal.
Devastated for decades, the borough has roared back—but pockets of poverty remain.

Predictive policing strikes its detractors as potentially Orwellian law enforcement; but at its best, it aspires to something quite the opposite—a return, albeit a high-tech one, to the days of police on the beat who knew their constituents and worked with them to keep neighborhoods safe.

Story
Tagline
A quarterly magazine of urban affairs, published by the Manhattan Institute, edited by Brian C. Anderson.
Introduction
City Journal is the nation’s premier urban-policy magazine, “the Bible of the new urbanism,” as London’s Daily Telegraph puts it. During the Giuliani Administration, the magazine served as an idea factory as the then-mayor revivified New York City, quickly becoming, in the words of the New York Post, “the place where Rudy gets his ideas.” The Public Interest goes further, calling City Journal “the magazine that saved the city.”

But City Journal is a national, not just a local, force, with a readership that spans the U.S.—and an especially enthusiastic audience in the nation’s capital. The country’s most thoughtful journalists are among the quarterly magazine’s subscribers, as are top businessmen and financiers. City officials from coast to coast are loyal fans, and mayors from Milwaukee’s John Norquist to Oakland’s Jerry Brown happily acknowledge City Journal’s influence on their own thinking and policy. Newspapers across the land, from the Wall Street Journal to the San Diego Union-Tribune, regularly print adaptations of City Journal articles, disseminating the magazine’s influence to millions of readers.

City Journal offers a stimulating mix of hard-headed practicality and cutting-edge theory, with articles on everything from school financing, policing strategy, and welfare policy to urban architecture, family policy, and the latest theorizing emanating from the law schools, the charitable foundations, even the schools of public health. Since urban policy encompasses almost all domestic policy questions, as well as the largest issues of our culture and society, the magazine views its canvas as very broad indeed. The magazine holds itself to the highest intellectual, journalistic, and literary standards, aiming to produce intelligent and absorbing reading for intelligent and discerning readers.
