The Seattle Times' Opinion on "Public Forum" Student Papers


"But we say again it is a risky thing to give legal control of a high-school newspaper to students."

High for the ACT, MME?

We received an email from a student that "a lot" of juniors came to school high for the three testing days. Since we obviously have no way to confirm this or know what he means by "a lot," we're just passing along his comment. He said that on any given day, there are always a few kids high, but it's kind of a joke to show up for testing that way and this year was no exception.

I don't know what the school could do to prevent this. But letting those kids stay at school and take the test doesn't help anyone.

It makes the "how to sell drugs at DHS" employment article a little less funny. See sidebar: "Dirty Dealing" by Kevin Yarows. (Firefox works better for the site than Safari)
