Valedictorians´ days numbered?
Schools rethink class ranking

Associated Press, by Carolyn Thompson

LANCASTER, N.Y.- At many American high schools, the graduation-day tradition of crowning a valedictorian is becoming a thing of the past. The ranking of students from No. 1 on down, based on grade-point averages, has been fading steadily for about the past decade. In its place are honors that recognize everyone who scores at a certain threshold - using Latin honors, for example. This year, one school in Tennessee had 48 valedictorians. About half of schools no longer report class rank, according to the National Association of Secondary School Principals. Administrators worry about the college prospects of students separated by

Class rank is a victim of grade creep. Any school that has 48 valedictorians doesn´t have any grade discipline.

Actually, I like the idea. Class Valedictorian may have the best GPA, but when studying is all they do, with no extra or intra curriculars, and nothing outside of academics that contribute to how rounded their prep school education really is, the standing can be misleading. More weight needs to be given to overall involvement and overall achievement in a number of areas that school instruction can´t necessarily measure.

The problem is that the Valedictorian took 3 shop classes, 2 music classes, and 3 PE classes.
The kid 10th in class took Calculus II, Physics, Trig, etc. My daughter was just a victim of these antics. That is how the afleetes keep their GPA up.

#17 Caveman points out a big problem. It happened at my son´s very good high school. The only way the PE & foods class kids were kept out of the top spots was by a kid taking lots of AP classes and getting A´s in them. If the school won´t differentiate between gym class and Calculus then the award loses its meaning.

Corey Stewart, the former Virginia state chairman for Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, is running for office again just one month after nearly becoming the Republican nominee in Virginia’s gubernatorial race. Now Stewart is running for the Senate against Hillary Clinton’s running mate, Tim Kaine. Stewart lost the GOP gubernatorial primary in Virginia to Ed Gillespie by a little over a percentage point in June. The former Trump campaign operative ran a very Trumpian campaign in that race, earning a lot of attention for his support of Confederate monuments and strong stances against illegal immigration. He plans on running on a similarly

"We´re very happy to come and take questions from an outlet that has been incredibly unfair and systematically against this president, I guess you made a business decision to do so," Conway said.

Jamel Dunn, 32, of Cocoa, drowned in a retention pond July 9. His body was recovered July 14, two days after his fiancee reported him missing. Late last week, a friend of Dunn´s family came across the video on social media and forwarded it to authorities in Brevard County.

It was an odd ceding of power: After all, there’s no law requiring televised parole hearings. But Simpson doesn’t just occupy a singular nexus between celebrity and the criminal justice system; there’s never been a figure like him in American life. Bisbee wasn’t alone in being starstruck. Her colleague, parole board member Adam Engel, wore an NFL tie. When Bisbee mistakenly declared

On June 28th, President Trump convened a roundtable at the White House that included victims of crimes committed by undocumented immigrants. The event was part of the Administration’s push to pass several new immigration bills designed to, in Trump’s words, “close the dangerous loopholes exploited by criminals, gang members, drug dealers, killers, terrorists.” A regular theme of the Trump Administration’s messaging on immigration has been to present undocumented “bad hombres” as an immediate threat to the safety and cohesion of the American family unit. But some of Trump’s immigration policies, in themselves, have endangered families across America. The stories below,

When many middle-aged people think back to their childhood, they remember roaming the streets with their friends during long, hot summers. Our parents threw us out the door in the morning and instructed us not to come back until dinnertime. Often in charge of younger siblings, we strayed further than we should have, got into trouble and, by the end of the summer, had a collection of triumphs, scars and memories for life. But surely such memories are just nostalgia? The bit about the sun always shining probably is. Yet one thing is certain – the level of parental involvement

The Republican president has a job approval rating around 40 percent. The GOP has an unfavorability rating around 56 percent. And Republicans trail Democrats by nine points in an average of "generic ballot" polls. McCain´s opponents bridge the political divide following brain cancer diagnosis All of which makes it notable that the Republican National Committee is trouncing the Democratic National Committee when it comes to raising money, especially from small donors.The numbers are striking. In June, the RNC raised $13.5 million to the DNC´s $5.5 million. For 2017 so far, the RNC has raised $75.4 million to the DNC´s $38.2 million.
