Filed under Op/Ed

A lot of work has gone into suppressing stereotyping at this school. The funny thing is that many people don’t understand that a stereotype isn’t necessarily a bad thing. The negative effects only start to show when a derogatory value is assigned to groups of people. These types of assumptions are unf...

We are living in exponential times. For example, did you know that it is predicted that this year will generate 4 exabyte’s (4x10^19) of unique information?

Senior experience: taking quizzes about yourself that rival those of Facebook, dressing up for an imaginary job five years from now, and pretending to have kids for the sake of sometimes messed up scenarios.

The system that our district has created to enforce and manage Internet filtering is deeply flawed.
