Keep tradition of education honors
Regarding the proposal by Pasco School superintendent Kurt Browning to eliminate the valedictorian and salutatorian honors from Pasco County schools, why can't the school district continue the valedictorian and salutatorian honors, and utilize the Latin honors summa cum laude, magna cum laude and cum laude designations in order to recognize more students and encourage them to excel as well?
The elimination of the valedictorian and salutatorian honors does absolutely nothing to improve the education of students, while continuing the tradition of honoring a valedictorian and a salutatorian does absolutely nothing to detract from the education of students.
Of all the issues that face the world, how did this become the one that demanded action?
