Please watch the KDKA report on students being sent home from school because they were not wearing an embroidered badge with the school name, U-Prep.
It would seem to be an imperative for students to be in school if they are to rise above the current 37% in Reading Proficiency and 39% in Math Proficiency on the 2010 PSSA.
Are there legal ramifications for denying students their education for such a flimsy reason?
This kind of "priority" puts students "at risk."
