Mrs. Walling’s 5th grade class has something to say. They’ve done their homework, literally, visiting mines and proposed mine sites around their state. Their opinion? Mining Oak Flat is not the best use of the land. Watch their message here.
And I have to say, if my teacher wore jeans and hiking boots in the classroom when I was a fifth grader in 1971, I would have gotten down to the business of my life much sooner. Good work, Mrs. Walling.
