Making the grade

Robert Redford report card

  • I'd like to start off Identifying myself as a Richland Collegiate High School student.

    It is my opinion that this article is a severe generalization of a previously biased opinion. I do agree that the situation described in the article is true within some situations, however such situations occur rarely and just as often as similar situations created by college students. The situation in which the author was describing is created by unprepared students both college and high school. To place the blame squarely upon the high school students is simply unrealistic. Doing so claims that college students are always disciplined, prepared, and possess good judgment and high level of maturity. If the author's claim is true than I urge the campus to cut spending and remove the campus police along with the RCHS program. With a campus occupied by only college students who are disciplined, prepared, and possess good judgment and high level of maturity, there is no reason to have law enforcement. The laws will be followed by these ideal collegiate students. Such is the argument that the author is making, that the college students are ideal while the high school students are not.

    We need not forget that college or high school, we are all human beings. As such, classes will exist with disruptions and non-ideal students on both sides. The contempt that this author displays is one that I personally feel towards many of my collegiate peers as well as my high school peers. I urge the campus to not point the blame at the RCHS program when we are not the only catalyst to this naturally occuring issue. Potter #comment 2
