Originality + school spirit First it was decided that homecoming should be longer than a week and then there were even more random spirit days for little apparent reason. Frankly, five homecoming days and some assembly days of dressing up to show some sort of contrived school spirit is enough for us. An...

Sports and music are equal

I’ll just come out and say it. Music is not harder than sports, and sports are not harder than music. Most musicians in this school would agree with me in saying that, a band for example, is comprised of one team trying to achieve one goal: a flawless performance. No other opponents. No fields to ...

As some of you may have noticed there are a few coffee stands down the street from our school. One such coffee stand is the Blendz bakini barista stand. This bikini barista stand is an absolute disgrace. Not only is it degrading to women, but right down the road from an educational building full of you...

Approximately 3,000 students in the Edmonds School District were left searching for other means of transportation to school this year as the news of the loss of state funding for bus services was spread. Families living within a one-mile radius of their child’s school received a letter in June, stati...

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...

For a couple years now Terrace High School students have felt belittled, violated, and even betrayed by teachers and administrators when our personal electronics are taken away in classrooms. Students don’t fully understand why the abduction is occurring, so an explanation of the situation is in order...

Can you remember 210 names? This year students and teachers are subjected to class sizes as large as 35 in English classes and up to 43 in P.E. classes. That’s right, classes could get even more chaotic around here. One positive is that the best learning is surely done when it is your day to stand...

On May 29, 2008, Avery Doninger of Lewis Mills High School filed an injunction to stop school administrators from removing her from running for senior class secretary because she wrote that the school superintendent was a “douche bag” on a live journal blog. Judge Sonia Sotomayor joined in a ruling...

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? That’s more info than the past 5,000 years. But, amongst these wild changes, the threat of the status quo is also rising exponentially. “Wars”...

The belated – and unnecessary – experience

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. Isn’t your experience as a senior supposed to be enjoyable? Most of the curriculum in senior...

The system that our district has created to enforce and manage Internet filtering is deeply flawed. When, four years ago, I noted the serious flaws in the decision to block blogs at high schools, the process required to fix the problem was unnecessarily complex. The heavy-handedness of the filtering,...
