Last month, the Danville Chapter worked with a group of students to engage in the community dialogue regarding issues that are important to them. Students wrote letters to the editor and several were published (see below)! Congratulations Danville students and keep up the good work!
Support Public Education
By: Ajah Watkins
I am 16 years old. I went to E.A. Gibson Middle School and have heard that it might be closing in the coming years.
I think it’s ridiculous that education is highly valued yet we are closing down schools. The wealthiest Virginians need to pay their fair share in taxes so kids can get a proper education.
If you have the same concerns I do about your children’s education, I encourage you to call Del. Danny Marshall and state Sen. Bill Stanley to let them know how important this issue is to Danville.
