My name is Kay Lemon responding to Bill Applegate's Editorial
regarding making the 12th grade matter.
Some Ohio educators are not living in the real world. Students who are planning to go to college or
further their education do not take their senior year lightly. They are focused and are eager to learn and
better their lives.
Due to the unstable economy, many parents losing their jobs, the
cost of student loans and tuition, at least half of graduating seniors will be
job hunting. The non-college bound students need all the education that
the school systems can give them for a four full years.
It's up to the school districts to make sure that the schedules
for seniors are the same as underclassmen. Make the senior year equally as tough. Give all students the
best education possible before they walk out the door and turn their
tassel. We don't need new ideas to help the college-bound students. We
need to educate all students to the full extent of their learning ability.
