New Era for our Schools?

Math, Art, Theater, Science, Engineering, Mandarin, Hindi, International Baccalaureate, Latino Culture, Global Development, Agriculture, Craft and Construction, Culinary Arts, Film and Video, Sports - just to name a few possibilities.

If we have a choice, let's discourage our school board from defensively approving a controversial, single elementary strand. Instead let's encourage them to open up the system and support our kids with a rich web of community-based charter schools.
