MEDFORD, Ore. — A compromise is what fourth grader Colette Henry is suggesting to Phil Long with the Medford School District.

The 9-year-old student says she wrote a letter to long on behalf of her former third grade teacher and her current fourth grade teacher.

“My teacher right now, she’s really nice to us all and I just don’t really, I don’t want her to have to go on strike and not be able to come and teach us because I think she really enjoys coming and teaching us.”

The letter suggests a solution for the conflict and asks Long to consider a compromise. Henry is having the letter delivered to Long on Monday.
