One of my best friends has somehow managed to put herself right into the middle of Oregon's controversial move to try and get rid of virtual online schools, such as Connections Academy. It's a very complicated situation, but I did want to at least bring it up here in order to make people aware of what's going on. Hopefully, other states won't get any funny ideas.
If you want to get caught up on the controversy, here is a link to her blog where she has been chronicling her adventures in the Oregon state legislature. She's been on the radio in Portland several times just in the last few days, as well as quoted in the local paper. My next question is, when is she running for state representative?
