Any chance of resurrecting the Tours post? I'm touring Stevens today, Montlake tomorrow. I also have lots of questions about what, if any, tour opportunities there will be for general ed at Lowell and TM, and for the Montessori moving from Minor to Leschi.
Did people go to this? I feel like these BEFTF bills are a HUGE deal, and I'm curious why there's not more of a splash about it here.
