    Great school, give credits away for taking a state mandated test. Is that legal?

    No offence to Ms. Beck.But....T & C, you just exposed yourself as being as shallow as we thought.
    If she were hispanic you'd probably bash her for no reason.
    I guess to please T & C you nave to have the complextion to make the connection.

    She's pretty, I'd sure listen to her, too. All joking aside, I think her yoth and her very seemingly caring manner will take her a very long way in the school system. We need those younger educators in the administration, such as she, to bring new ideas and turn our precious school systems back around in especially the Lodi-Galt area. Great job, young lady.
