Students demand advanced English
There are two schools of thought when it comes to challenging advanced students. Some people think students of all abilities should be grouped together so they all receive an equal education. Others believe advanced students should be in a separate group and offered a more rigorous curriculum.The key to this discussion is the challenging of students. Schools in general today don't challenge students to meet their potential. Everything is dumbed-down to the lowest common denominator. Chances for more advanced learning should be embraced, not voted down. The Mt. Diablo school board really is being the "devil".
