Closing Schools Should Be the Last Resort, Not the First

Earlier this month, the Seattle Public Schools (SPS) announced plans to close 20 elementary schools. According to the district, SPS simply has too many schools for too few students. This is not a new problem, as enrollment has been declining for several years. Between 2019 and 2023, the district lost over 5,000 students, most due to the COVID-19 shutdown. Read More ›

Uniform Schools Yield Uniformly Poor Results

Parents who have two or more children know how totally different children can be.
