BART AH YOU — Modesto Bee

Newspaper in Education was created to offer newspapers as an educational tool to area schools with the goal to reinforce a positive and lifetime reading habit in students by engaging them with current, relevant text.

Modesto Bee is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
