Students should have a right to say what feels right and wrong for them.  For example, I respect the school guidelines when it comes to electronics, I understand what certain teachers expect once I walk into their classroom.  One day, I had my phone during recess, the bell rang so I walked to my class....

What is school for?

Kamaile, Reporter

January 25, 2019


Filed under Opinion

School isn't a complete environment for learning but rather a game we play for grades, and how many A's we can get.

Lights, trees, presents, sweets, corny music...It must be Christmastime. Surprisingly, many actually won't celebrate because it is a "religious" holiday, but is it?
