You think of NC as down south but in Wake County its a northern liberal's delight. The Universities and the Research Triangle and ideas like this one. No more academic leaders in high school. Too stressful and creates unhealthy competition,
Really ? I enjoy seeing the pix on Newzjunky of those who excel. I think they have something to be proud of and none of them have backward baseball hats or tats.
High school is competitive and a participation ribbon upon graduation is a waste of time.
