Portland Association of Teachers rally to support Pioneer program

Tonight I joined Portland Association of Teachers members, concerned parents, and the broader community at a rally to support the Pioneer programs, which serve as a refuge for students who have severe emotional disorders that prevent them from succeeding at a neighborhood school. The School District announced this week that they will be moving the K-5 Pioneer students to another building, and they will be closing the middle and high school Pioneer programs.

We must “Support the Unsupported” in Portland Public Schools, and in our community.
