In the news: another teacher on budget cuts, PPS board to consider lease in Pearl

7:43 am

Portland Public Schools teacher Caryn Cushman challenges Ted Kulongoski’s call for teachers to work (more) for free, and the PPS board of education considers a lease for a new school in the Pearl district tonight, a move questioned by PAT president Rebecca Levison, among others (I questioned the idea when it was first floated a year ago).

Steve Rawley published PPS Equity from 2008 to 2010, when he moved his family out of the district.

    I can’t help wondering how many of those families will stay in their Pearl “lofts” after they have a second, third or fourth child. So I am glad the school board is taking a cautious approach. I even hope a few of them are reading this, so that I can remind them of what happened to the Pearl’s original neighborhood school, Couch: it was gradually taken over by MLC.
