Don't short change traditional schools

Recently, the Nevada Union valedictorians for the class of 2013 were announced. Of the 54 students named, 27 of them received their K-8 instruction in the Nevada City School District. Fifty percent of these outstanding students were educated in a traditional school, not a charter school.

My challenge to you is to research the value of traditional schools now that you have written a multi-page article on charter schools. As all fair journalists know, you must provide all sides of a story. It is your responsibility to cover traditional schools as well. I look forward to being interviewed to share the daily, brilliant events going on at Deer Creek School in the Nevada City School District.
