Have Something to Say?

Ms. Turner’s yearbook class, due to an unnecessarily large amount of students, has two classes in one now. There is the yearbook staff and a newspaper staff. Since most of the work takes place in the high school’s library, we are interested on your opinion of your current library and what ideas or suggestions you have to improve it and make it an appealing area to study and learn in. Also, let us know what you would like to see in our new online paper.

You may leave comments at the bottom or contact Ms.Turner in the library during school hours.

Also, if you do not have any ideas or suggestions for the library, you can let us know your opinion on educational reform. It’s obvious that there are students across the nation who do not show any interest in a “general education.” A general education is similar to what we have here at CRHS: we make our 4 and 5 year plans and take classes to educate us for our intended future career, along with “general” classes, also known as our “core” classes.

In Germany, children pick what careers they would like to be trained in after 8th grade. They take a test similar to our WESTest and if scores are high enough, students may continue on to something like college and then advance to universities. Lower scores take commercial trades, similar to shop, and still continue to be successful in most cases. This is because a “general education” is not forced upon them.

Some argue that a general education creates more rounded personalities, while some protest that students who are training for a specific trade or career that have no interest in other subjects, degrade the experience for those who want to learn more.
