"My 'top notch' school education was not good enough"

This is what a valedictorian, Kareem Elnahal, told his teachers and administrators in his valedictory speech on June 20 at one of America's top 1,200 schools, Mainland Regional High School in Linwood, N.J.

He said he felt that his education was hollow and that most important questions were not even asked!

On the other hand, Daniel Loggi, superintendent of the Atlantic County, N.J., School District, said he felt that Elnahal went about saying what he did in the wrong way. According to him, the administration never had a chance to look at Elnahal's speech beforehand, to either approve or disapprove. That is the whole crux of the matter! This speech would not have been approved. THAT is why the administration was upset with Elnahal. He did not tow the line!

I wish more people would stand up to all this low grade education like Kareem Elnahal did.

Just thinking...
