When the powers in the district drop teachers, increase class size, reduce available academics and maintain all fun and games, everyone should realize the system has its priorities upside down. Yes, we all want to be stars, but there are very limited roles at the top of the entertainment scene. It is about time we looked at other systems in other countries and see the difference. If we threw the garbage out, we might make some progress.
