Thank you for publishing Jenny Neyman's story about the Peninsula Optional High School's "Summit on Universal Human Rights and the Environment." I had the honor of listening to several of the presentations, which ranged from topics such as AIDS to women's rights. These students did a fantastic job of researching and presenting current information on some very serious subjects. In addition, each student identified what each of us can do to promote human rights and care for the environment.
Kudos to the teachers Tad Degray and Dawn Edward-Smith for their creative teaching and direction, and an extra big "thanks" to principal Greg Wilbanks for his willingness to take a risk, be a visionary and implement the standards-based model in our local school system.
