I'm an 18-year-old high school senior. As graduation quickly approaches, you will find me in school eight hours a day, five days a week fighting to hold on to the last bit of desire I have to actually be there.
With high school such a big time commitment, you'd think I would have fond memories. I do reminisce about great teachers, friends, and sporting events, but more often I think of the overcrowded classrooms and the demolition derby we call the back parking lot. I feel insignificant in my classroom of 42 students.
Our school districts should focus on cutting school sizes.
