I agree with memo's comments. Castillo has done nothing to improve services for special needs students, and in fact helped to close the Oregon School for the Blind. She says the state has processes for parent's to seek solutions when their child's needs are not being met, but that process is a farce. Just as the teachers' union puts its own needs above that of students, the "due process" that is available to parents is a sham. ODE does little to assure that the rights of students are met, and hearing officers are employees of the state. 90% of cases are ruled in favor of the districts. What does that tell you? We need an outside, independent entity to assure true due process in complaints and disputes with SDs over the education of special needs students.
I'm definitely voting against Castillo.
