  • Thank you agentwanda, however, I live in Oregon. I just read about this and it hit me really hard, so I thought I would pass along the info. Education is really important to me, as it should be for all americans. Thank you for your support. I hope this school stays open as well as the other schools that are on the chopping block. Cutting the education of our youth is the wrong thing to do no matter what the situation.

  • I agree mammacita9. Education is the answer to solving most or all of the problems we are having.
    Our children need to be prepared for the future and aspire to a better life and contribute to society in a constructive way. That can only happen of they take advantage of all opportunities to attend higher educattion beyond high school. They need the best from elementary and secondary schools to insure that they CAN attend college..

  • I wish I could but I'll keep these girls in my thoughts. Perhaps we should send some Wisconsinites there to teach the girls how to protest :)
