The Importance of Small Schools

Victor Hugo: 1802-1885
First Posted Nov. 2014
At 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!
