Letter: School diversity inspires pride

According to a recent study by UAA sociology professor Dr. Chad Farrell, the Anchorage School District includes the three most diverse high schools in the nation: West, East and Bartlett. What a point of pride and wonderful opportunity for our community!

As a parent, I am very happy that my children will be exposed to different cultures and world views as they grow up and learn to form their own.

And as a public school educator, I am motivated by the idea that if we can further strengthen our successful public school system for all, we can be a positive example for the rest of the nation. Please join me in supporting a well-rounded public education that provides opportunity for all and celebrates our rich diversity.
