Friday, the Portland Tribune published its second Rethinking Portland section, this time asking the question: How do we create an excellent Ñ not just good Ñ school district? You can find the section online at www.portlandtribune.com.
We also asked a variety of district officials, educators, parents, taxpayers, students and business leaders to give us their vision of how to reshape our school district to fit current demographic and funding realities. Ten of their essays ran in Friday's edition and can be found online. Three more appear here.
