Capitol matters.

Hello Friends,

Earlier this month, Salem Keizer School District provided a community forum on their Behavioral Support Services. In a class size of 25 kindergarteners or first graders it is estimated at least 5-6 students will have significant behavioral issues that disrupt the classroom. At times a teacher must “clear” the classroom of other students so the one struggling can calm down. This week over 3,000 students and teachers visited the Capitol seeking funds to support behavioral & mental health services, and smaller class sizes, to turn the “classroom crisis” around.
