Yes, all things are possible. You could win the lottery, become a rock star, or be the next MVP for the NFL.
The obstacles placed on our youth will build character. So while you work hard in remedial math and english classes in college, know that the light at the end of the tunnel is just ahead for you.
This system took a nosedive and it is the kids that will pay for its consequenses. Our District administrators and their trustees are filling their pockets with what ever is not tied down. I hope they can see that their time here is limited as the noose tightens from the federal authorities for corruption and fraud.

UNTIL guidance administrators are fired, the devils are still in place.

The curriculum is not certified by NCAA destroying the ability to recruit student athletes.

DREAMS have be shattered.......

You may have a point but I've always thought it was better the devil you know. When one graduates, they still might have the devil to pay but they'll be well on their way by then.

It does not compute.

The dreams of a youngster were erased by the failure to certify the curriculum.
