Student: NBEA blog can't handle the truth ... Sarah Elizabeth Hope
I can sympathize with the frustrations of those who feel as though the glory of the school system and the city alike are declining speedily. However, I do not agree with it.
I believe that next year, the high school really will have a better learning and teaching environment. Many disagree with me, which is acceptable, or at least it is their right to disagree.
The teachers union blog has become a place for teachers and community members to voice their frustrations. Although I am a student, I have taken the opportunity of the comments section in order to possibly convince, or enlighten, some of the negative-minded community members.
Several of my comments were anonymous, stating that I was a student only, then once or twice with my identity attached.
Every single time I have done so it has been disputed, especially with my first post, that I was not a student, and simply Superintendent Pia Durkin trying to get support of the teachers.
False. I am a student, and a rather well-performing one. It's shocking. NBHS has good students?
This reaction from negative teachers is not surprising. This simply goes to show the lack of confidence some teachers have in their students.
I am often horrified at the abuse and terrible things some say on that blog. I know this newspaper has probably been getting many other letters to the editor on such issues, but I believe it is appropriate, since it is such a hot topic lately.
For those reading who have been perpetrators of said offenses, I respect your opinion. I just don't agree with the opinion itself, the way you portray it in such profanity on the Internet, or the cruel and inhumane comments set forth about others.
Thank you for your time, and for considering my opinion.
