Today's Oregonian newspaper ran a front-page article about the new graduation requirements in Oregon, which will require that kids pass reading, writing, and math tests, along with passing their required number of classes, in order to graduate.
Oregon City High School is ahead of the state averages in getting to those goals, and the reporter interviewed me yesterday about our progress.
You can read the article here. I'm actually named and quoted in the last paragraph! More important than having my name in the paper, I'm really proud of the work we do at OCHS to help all kids read, write, and do math better than they used to.
