Assessing a Teacher

You’re sitting in history class trying your best not to fall asleep as the teacher lectures on about yet another war. It certainly doesn’t help that you stayed up until 11:00 last night typing up an essay for English. A stranger with an official-looking SMUHSD nametag walks in, examining the homework assignment written on the board before sitting down for the next 40 minutes nodding his head thoughtfully as Mr. /Ms. So-and-So goes through the material for that day, all the while making notes on a clipboard. Later, the stranger asks you, “How do you feeeel about this class?” before…

Arranged Marriage

Times are changing and it is now the 21st century. People go out and meet others, fall in love and get married. However, the tradition of arranged marriages still stays. In India, marriage is a bond between two families and not just two people. The parents would meet with the children and their future in-laws to make the decision for their children. There were often times where the first contact between the engaged would be at their wedding. Nowadays, Indians in America have loosened the restrictions and have taken their children’s opinions into account as well. They let the children…

Koran Burning

There is a huge difference between freedom of speech and insulting a whole community of people. Although it’s true in America no one can stop you from stating how you feel or giving out your opinion, there are also boundaries.

It’s extremely sad that some students won’t be graduating. All the years of hard work and effort ends with nothing. Although there are some students that do want to walk the stage, it is still constantly a battlefield until the day of graduation. Some students don’t care about school and don’t even try, in the other hand some do care and won’t quit until they graduate. Sometimes the issues…

GSA Stays Silent While Raising Voices For Gay Rights

On Friday the 16 The Day Of Silence (DOS) took place. During lunch at the rally, everyone wearing purple wore it to support DOS. For those of you who don’t know what the Day Of Silence is, it is a social protest in which all participating figures don’t speak in order to symbolize the lack of voice that lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people (LGBT) have in society. There was a big turnout of people who participated on Friday, but it was apparent that some had difficulty keeping the vow of silence. As a participant, I too found the prospect…

Are Stars Shining Bright or Burning Out?

It’s that times of the year where students once again break from the daily routine of attending classes and instead take hour-long subject exams known as the STAR test. For some, the test is a complete nuisance. Yet others see it as an essential component to public education. Here are two perspectives. Pro-Victoria Xiao Every year, STAR testing comes along. To may students, it is an ugly beast that rears its head to lower morale and increase stress. However, changing one’s mindset can make the STAR tests a lot more bearable. Just remember two important things: it is a standardized…
