Statement of Support for Benson High School sign now

We believe that Benson High School has been a major contributor to the City of Portland and its economy, with an exceptional record of closing the achievement gap in the Portland Public School System. Its full-time, 4-year educational model of combining solid academics with hands-on technical training is a proven method of preparing the job-ready and college-ready graduates desired by both colleges and employers. At the same time, we recognize the many constraints on the school district in devising a viable set of city high schools. We support any and all efforts of the Superintendent and the School Board Members to modify the current high school system design recommendation, keeping Benson High School, to the fullest extent possible, a true, stand-alone career-technical education high school, granting its own high school diplomas.

    Transforming Benson to a skills center will limit, not expand, the population served by the school. Benson will lose students such as myslf - those passionate about science, math & technology, but also community, athletics and non voc/tech academics.

    Please keep Benson as is and go back to the application process like we had to follow in 1979! To convert to a half day program is a total injustice & not well thought out! The students would have to somehow manage getting to and from their neighborho

    I completed my student teaching at Benson, and as someone with first-hand experience inside the classrooms, it would be a great disservice to our students to close or extensively modify the terrific programs and coursework.
