Excellence through competition is primarily addressed to school boards, school officials and PTAs. Some people are misled by all the press and hoopla that sports is at the top in importance. However, there are some who believe education and learning should have the top spot in our schools.
Could we perhaps give some thought to the idea of the schools competing in head-to-head competitions in academics? Wouldn’t a school that sees it scored near the bottom in, say, the math competition, try a little harder? Wouldn’t The Star and other papers be enhanced by adding a section showing scores on academic competitions?
