It seems that the school district in my area is considering doing away with the Geography requirement for HS students. This sucks. That's all I have to say about that.
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.
