PPS School Boundary Talks: Objections (and Equity Issues) Surface

In the last few months, I’ve been posting articles on the PPS boundary talks, discussions around the community about changes that will take place in order to relieve schools that are too full and to shift students into schools with smaller student bodies.  These changes would also possibly move some schools from one model to another (a K-8 to a K-5, for example).  While discussions thus far have been amazingly calm and seemingly neutral, last year’s tense boundary talks between Alameda and Sabin schools has resurfaced with a letter from the Alameda Neighborhood Association.

What do you think about the letter?  And what do you think about ways boundary shifts may impact educational equity in Portland?  As always, I’d love to hear your opinions…
