“I would like them to learn how to integrate technology in our schools so that it helps prepare us for the future.” “I think that they should allow texting and calling in between class periods, especially when my call might further my education. I also think they need more flexibility in funding. For example, they started a free lunch program at the same time they laid off a bunch of teachers.” “They need another level of classes. Currently, everyone is either in honors or college prep, and not every student is really college prep.” “A block schedule to give students the opportunity to take more classes during the school year. I also think that schools need to have more money put directly into the classrooms.”

    I would like to see...........

    Algebra and history-- History! Well they can be chosen in school but Only as an elective taken voluntarily for those choosing specific careers that utlilize. And since history always repeats itself anyway we might as well stop studying it and replace it w/ a class called Future- and the fundamentals of how to preserve it.

    Other required courses would include first aid class, survival class and a class on misc stuff everyone should know, like how to changing a tire, money management and how important a credit score will be in life.
