RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I listened carefully to the entire on-air program and although my previous comments had serious formatting errors, I am now not in a hurry to write & applaud OPB, Lena, Dalton, BT, and all of the speakers who contributed to the conversation this morning.
Am I alone or did I hear a light-bulb go on when Rep. Gelser referred to combining WA & OR State Schools as a possible solution, as well as, that "they" had been told by the director that academic curriculum at the school was out of the question? The tone of the show turned to rejuvenating what the school offers now to include both traditional academic and extended core curriculum; not closure.
It felt, in my opinion that the public is saying they want to keep the school open (far more comments of support) but also for reform to take place at the school…I say again, OK, but that means we MUST NOT let the Senate pass 2834. We cannot just wait to see what happens this week; we must contact each and every Senator, Representative, as well as, the Governor www.leg.state.or.us.
The people are telling you, our state legislators, that they do not want this bill to pass and they do want to keep OSB as an option for our kids. What exactly OSB should be, offer as services, & look like are things which our OSB Board of Directors are competent to lead us toward developing; they have new and different ideas, but they must be totally supported by all of us for a chance to do their work, say it with me..”I BELIEVE IN OSB-BOD”….quick someone make some slogan pins!! Alioops!
