Double standard for students' summer reading

As a rising freshman to Lugoff-Elgin High School, I would like to thank Chris Crutcher for writing an article entitled, "To the High School Students of the KCSD…" It made me aware of my own school district's hypocrisy. What I am referring to is the fact that while the book "Angry Management" by Chris Crutcher was removed from my school reading list, it is still required of me to read and annotate John Steinbeck's "Of Mice and Men."

Reggie Lloyd

Kershaw County resident Reggie Lloyd has had an impressive -- some would say meteoric -- career run in his public life. After practicing law for a prestigious Columbia law firm, he was elected a circuit court judge, and then he became U.S. Attorney for South Carolina, the first African-American to serve in that post since Reconstruction.

But in convoluted Washington fashion, that program's full cancellation is, by statute, actually up to Congress.

Now the rubber meets the road

November 4 is past, and statewide elections have been decided. As I have discussed in earlier columns, I am always intrigued, and even a little amused, with the amount of rhetoric that is aimed at education during election time. Now that the votes have been cast, there are a lot of important educational issues hanging in the air that will need to be resolved by newly elected office holders. The decisions made will have significant and lasting impact.
