I remember while on the way to

Test Scores Over Touchdowns: When Sports Soil Our Education System

A well written post that hit’s a spot that needs to be looked at a lot more closely.

the quiet voice

I have attended every book club meeting at my school. I’ve never missed a National Honor Society meeting, a Math Honor Society meeting, a Social Studies Honor Society meeting, or a Latin Honor Society meeting.
