William Weber commented on Harvest Heritage
In the Portland Maine school system we are going through a similar state of flux. Our school board has abandoned the old policy adopted in 1984 with a Weighted GPA and class rank for something still to be developed. Many parents and students had very similar comments as your school. In fact the...

Chad and Matt, Managers of Charlottesville Sports & Social Club and Outdoor Adventure Social Club, respectively, want to let readers know that we applaud each other's organizations and view them as complementary, not competitive. CVSSC is about sports leagues, OASC is about trips into the...

I wondered why the re-vamping of the Program of Studies was listed under the School division goal of "Eliminate the Acheivement Gap". It didn't mention there that the means was to lower the level of instruction, which is what this is, despite protests to the contrary. No surprise teachers and...

Study after study after study has shown that seat belts would make kids significantly less safe in buses. The problem with the logic that they'd reduce injuries is that it assumes that they're properly worn -- snugly around the hips. When improperly worn, such as loosely up the waist, seat belts...

Ya know many people dismiss the fact that these creatures are legends to thousands of years. Their very history sparks the growing feeling of exasperation inside of us. Which villain is the most induring since satan? I like the fact that people are giving these ppor beings another point of view....
