District is unevolved due to missing Link.

I read, with interest, the article in The Everett Herald about Jan Link, retired Edmonds School District Principal, who has created a small student tutoring business, which has included an after-school tutoring program at a Lynnwood apartment complex, which is funded by a grant.

Ms. Link participates with the tutoring 2 days a week according to the article. What a wonderful opportunity for kids, especially those living in low income service areas.

My point: There are educators out there who CARE about kids' learning, both in the classroom and beyond. Kudos to Jan Link for her efforts.

Editor: Thank you for pointing out this great piece of news. Sometimes we can get so distracted by all of the bad news - and there is a lot of it - that we might miss a shining example of greatness.
