We congratulate: Collins’ seniors for their initiative
In the continuing debate among students, parents and administrators concerning the new graduation seating policy for Shelby County Public Schools, we now have a new and important voice being raised if not necessarily heard.
Members of the senior class at Collins High School have delivered to the administration their considered request to have the seating policy returned to its former structure, which was to seat honor graduates in the order of rank.
Their arguments, based on tradition and their personal years of dedicated effort, are well-conceived, well-stated and well-intended.
We congratulate their initiative, their spirit and their commitment to the values that have defined their academic careers.
And we think it’s too bad that they have yet to receive a response from members of the school board or administrators.
It’s as if their voices don’t matter, that the affected don’t have a proverbial dog in this fight...
