    The grading system is absolute garbage.

    You cannot get more than 100%. Extra work is just a way for "average" students to boost their scores. It makes a mockery of real academic achievement.

    No offense to you your or grandson HD. He is no dummy to be named Salutatorian. My rant is about the system in general. Catering to the lowest common denominator and "no kid left behind" BS.

    People fail in the real world - even smart people who have no common sense or are too lazy.

    Congradulations to both of you. Does he take after his grandmother ( LOL )? It 's great to hear about young people that have learned to be hard and smart workers. You did a good job. Mike

    Ah...smart kid. I used to get extra GPA credit for "advanced placement" classes in high school back in...ahh, I'll admit it, '63 and '64. But we did have to work. I thought it was unfair at the time that "smarter" kids had an unfair playing field. I thought that life is fair. I mean life has been fair to me, but not as fair to others. That's not fair. Anyway, congrats.

    Hoosier....You have every reason to be proud. Quite an accomplishment. It speaks volumns about the way his parents brought him up, as it does to his grandparents, who obviously raised their kids with some pretty good values to teach him. Congratulations!!.......Dan Thome (Trap2)
