Today I camped out for three hours in front of Ockley Green K-8 school in North Portland. It was Parkways Sunday in North Portland (here). Roads were closed to automobile traffic on an eight mile circular route through neighborhoods. Lots of bicyclists, skaters and walkers were out. I sat with my “Make a Year of Study Abroad an Option for High School” placards. And I introduced my new placard “Shame on the Teacher Unions for Opposing High School Study Abroad,” because they do (and are the major obstacle to such programs).
