Time to raise the bar
by Yeda Hicks

Mike your letter on favoritism caught my attention. I don't know if all that you said is true or not but if it's true, expose the guy and get rid of him.

On another point. I think the C average required for students to play basketball at Ketchikan High School is a great disservice to our future generation of (possible) leaders. I know students that are really great ball players yet barely passing in school because all that is required of them is a 2.0. Time to raise the bar.

What happens to those kids when they wake up and decide they want to attend college? What kind of job will they qualify for with just a high school education? And with failing grades at that!

Time to raise the bar.
