Very true, I know all about the Geography teacher at the High School. He's quite the informed Cultural Geographer. This totally sucks!Learning about the people who live in theat dot on the map, their cultures, climates, etc is geography.
I hope those problems are VERY HUGE, cause sacrifying education would be the last thing that could come to my mind... It has quite a long term effect and quite harmfull.Oregon is having huge budget troubles, so the first people they screw is the kids... by cutting the school year by 3 weeks.
