Write-In Leous and Hendrickson

The upcoming School Board election in State College seems to mark an important turning point for our schools. As someone with two young daughters who will enter the district in the next three or four years, I was very disturbed to read the following article from Voices of Central PA.
Although many people were clearly upset about the idea of renovating the High School, it seems that we have lost sight of the important question of who can best ensure that our schools continue to achieve excellence. It is more than a little concerning that local developers contributed so much money to the State High Vision slate of candidates.
Happily, it is still possible to counteract the influence of these developers because Jim Leous, my neighbor and colleague at Penn State, and Robert Hendrickson, who has served on the Board during a period in which the district established a strong record of excellence, are running as write-in candidates.
