I was the principal of Edison Elementary in Centralia, Washington, for 14 years. We were over 30 percent Hispanic, 70 percent poverty, and 15 percent ELL, yet we were regularly recognized on the state achievement index as either “exemplary” or “very good” based on our academic performance. I would like to attend and hear about equity issues in Seattle and share some perspective from my rural community.
