Ha! My school is great! Of course we aren't in a city so I guess that's why, no black people to dumb things down.
I know that sounds racist, but hey, white kids don't need F 451 translated into "What he means by hello is Yo wat up my n*@^$. What he means by
book is "Something you will never touch outside of school." And so forth. WHen they see Nixon on the plane doing the Peace symbol half scream
about him doing a crip gang sign the other half applaud because he is doing their gang sign. TPS schools have gotten F grading every year for as long
as I have been alive. WHile all the white hicks/rednecks/country listeners schools get passing grades. As far as I know from watching local news
several of the TPS schools have 20 year old sophmores. NBC had a special on it, doing the "Average Age" thingy and how the sophmore classes had
older students then senoir classes since they can't pass a simple test at a 8th grade level. Sad, they were doing coverage of Scott's HS
graduation, 7 senoirs graduated... Out of a school with over a thousand students, only 7 graduated, while my school has almost all the senoirs
graduate, even the jocks and cheerleaders, and have about 300-400. I hated the test we had to take to go from sophmore to junoir because it was so
easy and had over three hours to do it. Thankfully I had my books and MP3 player to keep me busy for the other two hours and ten minutes. So, the
TPS schools in a big city get more funding then the dinky village/town schools yet we get better grades. Although the TPS schools lost funding since
they keep failing the state evaluation.
Go Cardinals!(Cardinal Strich, not a private HS but like one, you don't pay extra, it is a pubblic school, but you have to pass a test to get in)
