|Victor Hugo: 1802-1885|
First Posted Nov. 2014At the last CUSD board meeting the Trustees voted to keep the district's small schools open. After the vote was confirmed, joy and clapping filled the boardroom .
The power of the board's decision will have long-term and far reaching affects. The value and importance of their decision is found in a quote by Victor Hugo: "He who opens a school door, closes a prison."
Education, it seems, has the power to save lives and communities. I only wish more people could have been there to hear the applause. It was a monumental feeling!
