One of the primary purposes of our public schools is to help every child become an engaged citizen who is willing and able to actively participate in our democracy. A high school diploma is our seal of approval that a young person has demonstrated their readiness for this responsibility. There are many ways to measure this readiness. It undermines the core values of democracy to use a single test to deny this right-of-passage to students because of their minority or socioeconomic status. This is effectively what a high-stakes WASL does.

Where do we begin in thanking all the people involved in passage of the bond for renovation and new construction at Cascade Valley Hospital?

With the Immigration Bill looming in the Senate we are on the path to a one-party system. What would be the ramifications, if true?
