    Some athletes choose the high school they’re going to attend solely based off the school’s performance in sports. It’s no secret Rainier Beach creates NBA-caliber players or that O’Dea, Garfield and Bellevue are known for their football programs. There was a time when female hoopers were c...

    Wanted: teachers of color
