I P-SAT down when I heard this.

The school district has mandated that all Juniors will take the PSAT. I repeat--all Juniors--even those taking their 2nd and 3rd crack at the 11th grade. What's wrong with this picture? College (I'm talking about those traditional four year jobbies.) is not for everyone. And I'm not just talking about those repeaters either. There are plenty drowning with the high school workload and atmosphere, so pardon me if I don't think that the college thing, full of its distractions, keggers, and professors with office hours will be the perfect fit.

Speaking of drowning, let me use a swimming pool analogy. Thinking that so many need to be in college is like overloading a pool with chlorine. It becomes useless. Sometimes we needed exclusiveness, in order to produce quality.

I don't know. Maybe I'm being too harsh, but I can't understand a society which celebrates those millionaires who were high school and/or college drop-outs is dead set that "everybody" should go to school. What? So we can have even more drop-out success stories?

Maybe I'm just cranky because my 1st and 3rd periods will now be behind a day due to the test taking all morning. That's okay. I'll just figure out how to catch them back up during my 2nd period planning hour. Oh, never mind. I forgot. Naturally, I'll be administering the PSAT to a bunch of kids who don't want to take the test.

It's October and this place is running like a well-oiled machine!
