LETTER TO THE EDITOR
If it doesn’t go against school code, I would like to make a plea for more questions. Particularly those in regards to all of the testing given in our high school as well as throughout our entire district. Students deserve to know why they are being required to do all of this testing, who initiated it, and why neither the students nor teachers have a say in any of it. I strongly encourage topics like these to be published in the West Bend Current as it’s the media’s gift to bridge the informative gap between the administration and the student body.
As displayed in last semester’s riot, we the students want accountability and answers. And if our own school newspaper can’t uncover a few answers to our questions, or give the student body a voice, then I have to ask what’s the point of having a school newspaper? I wish not to antagonize any journalists or publishers of the West Bend Current, as I actually think that the articles written are very good. What I do ask, as a West Senior, is in this time of new curriculums, policies, and administration, may the West Bend Current be the tool to give the students and teachers of West Bend High back their voice.
