3 Clowns in there now sounds a wee bit harsh now, don't you think?<quoted text>
You're a liar.
My daughter was at the high school for this. It was a heartfelt farewell to a man those kids respect. You are lying to suggest otherwise. What is this SEA Youth Union garbage you keep making up? Those kids were genuinely sad to see him go (except Harper Kohls et. al.). They were not prompted to do it by anyone. Just because they supported someone you don't like doesn't mean they were forced to do it or that it was not genuine. Accept it: Ron Malone was a popular principal with both the students and staff because he is a good man and a good leader. Better than the 3 clowns in there now. Malone has earned more respect in this community than KPR combined. Quit lying - you look like an idiot, probably because you are.
How exactly do you know what one young woman was thinking?
Is it really good to bring a minor into this conversation on a public website?
Your bitterness is getting ahead of what passes for your common sense.
Why don't we all sit down and rationally discuss why our 40% gifted population averages a D- or high F on the reading and math portions of the ACT.
According to Mr. Malone's grading scale that he utilized to assign percentages to grades in the PSEO classes our better students took at local colleges,
"All letter grades earned for completion of college courses will be assigned the following numerical value and will be used to determine GPA and class rank:
A = 95 B = 85 C = 75 D = 65 F = 59
• If a student would like the exact percentage to be factored into his/her GPA and class rank, the college transcript MUST show the percentage.
• It is the responsibility of the student/parent to understand the grading policy of the college. SHS does NOT adopt their grading policy."
Why don't we try and figure out how to give our children the education they deserve and the taxpayers the value they are funding?
The benefits to the children, their families finances, and the country at large would be huge. High ACT tests scores translate into academic scholarship monies that all could utilize. Children getting out of school sans tens of thousands of dollars of debt. Families that do not have to remortgage the house to pay for classes their children should have mastered at the public high school.
It is within our reach, the question is whether it is within our will.
