Congratulations Jacko. You taught me everything I ever learned about journalistic ethics, especially the importance of the word "allegedly."
one of the teachers of "the top 600". My oldest who graduated '08 was not part of the Freestyle program - but I know a junior who is a bit of a creative outsider - and he is enthusiastic about taking classes there next year. I think this program works because it is 'project oriented' rather than just 'technology/computers'.
I believe this was started and continues with the small stipend out of the property taxes that the Shoreline District withholds from all district schools. This will expire in less than 9 years - or 2 years after the MV City Council votes a fiscal "emergency". Recently they voted a fiscal "crisis".
I also think there has been good local technical company contributions to this program, and a fairly astute form of listening by the creators of the program.
I have known Gordon Jack since he was a teen and I can say that he is one of the nicest, most honest, creative people around. Congratulations to Gordon and the Freesytle Academy for their dedication and hard work to encourage all students to learn and achieve great things. Don't cry for him Argentina!
Don't miss out on the discussion!
