EDITOR'S DESK: All eyes on Shoal River

Published: Wednesday, September 5, 2012 at 01:38 PM.

By helping classmates when problems arise, students learn responsibility and take ownership of their classroom, perhaps, in a way that we didn’t all those years ago.

Though the learning communities’ ultimate effect at Shoal River remains to be seen, students who applied for the program, and were accepted in it, by all accounts have found a way to reduce distractions, focus on their education and, along the way, learn some leadership values.  

And, oh yes — we will be watching, very closely, to see how this all turns out.

This year, all eyes will be on Shoal River Middle School.
