Sean Kershaw asks: How can we involve students, and why is enrollment declining?

Our first weekly guest on these pages is Sean Kershaw, Executive Director of the Citizens League. The League tries to live by the rule that those who are impacted by a problem should have the opportunity to help define it. So he-- and we on Students Speak Out-- are asking students what they think about their schools.

I agree. It would be great to feature a couple MPS students who are on SSO in the upcoming december issue. I already have a working relationship with Annie, so I could always use her.
