Save Honors Classes in the Rockford Public Schools.
"Excellence Everywhere" is said to be the commitment. What about our schools?
As parents, students, teachers, business owners and taxpayers, we are dismayed at the decision to eliminate Honors courses from Rockford schools without notice to, or input from, the Board of Education, educators, parents and community members.
We understand it is the right of every student to have access to a rigorous curriculum that is designed to challenge their minds, enhance their knowledge and skills and prepare them for success in college and work.
We respectfully request the Board of Education to reject this decision and insist on a 2011-2012 high school course selection which includes, at a minimum, the Honors courses offered in the 2010-2011 school year.
