I had two students come to me to day for an ear to listen to them. They are both taking journalism, which does our yearbook. Both these students are seniors, and both submitted proposals to be editor of the yearbook. Our journalism teacher has told students many times that if they want to work on the yearbook, they must be in the class. He announced today that he has appointed another student as editor. First of all, the student hasn't been in journalism since he was a sophomore (he's also a senior). He attends our local governor's school, so he leaves the building everyday at 12, and doesn't get done with rehearsals until 6:00. Then, he has his other classwork to complete. The students cannot access the yearbook from home, and our journalism teacher clocks out at 3:00 everyday. They think it's unfair, and I have to agree. I know the student in question, and while he is a very nice, bright kid, he is not the most organized, nor is he the most motivated young man. He loves theatre, and that's what he does, and he's good at it. He was only in journalism to begin with because his girlfriend at the time was in it. I suggested the kids talk to the teacher first, and find out if there were other reasons. Then, if they still feel he is being unfair, they should talk to the principal. I definitely think the teacher's being completely unfair, and both of these students would be better editors, in my opinion.
