  • Dear, Geraldine

    I am strongly impressed by your article “should community college be free” because I agree with you stating that community college can be expensive for some people and those people struggle to pay their needs. Since a community college is just about 2 years long I believe it should be as expensive as where students can find a…Read More

    Do we need the SAT/ACT?

    In the article "Should Colleges Still Require the SAT/ACT?"(Upfront, Schaeffer, 2017 subscription required) I learned that standardized test scores allow colleges to compare the readiness of any two students on the same scale. that's where the SAT/ACT comes in...

    • I also believe that the SAT/ACT are unnecessary as they do not always accurately reflect students skill levels.

      I found this article very informative on this topic.

    • Dear Blanca,

      I am very interested by your post, “Do we need the SAT/ACT?” because these tests allow the schools to see what a student has learned over the school year. These scores can be important because colleges require students to take this test. 

      One sentence you wrote that stood out to me was, “On the other hand, there is 62% of voters want the test scores required to come to an end since a number should never determine what a person is capable of learning or achieving”. I was impressed by the total score of how much more don’t want the test than those who think we should take the test. I think I slightly agree with this since these overall scores can’t be relied on fully.

      Thanks for your writing, I look forward to seeing what else you will write next because I want to see more votes on what people want and don’t.

    • Dear Blanca:

      I am impressed by your post, “Do we need the SAT/ACT?” because it is important how SAT/ACT scores can determine your future and your future colleges. I think it can be important how scores over the year can benefit you. 

      One sentence that stood out to me was, “Meanwhile, other people believe that it should not be a thing since it won’t fully determine what a student knows or is able to learn more. On this hand, we have about 38% of voters believe that colleges should still keep a requirement for the tests to continue. On the other hand, there is 62% of voters want the test scores required to come to an end since a number should never determine what a person is capable of learning or achieving.” I think this is important because many colleges will still ask for your SAT/ACT scores and expect you to have high scores. 

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I like your article about SAT/ACT scores. I would like you to continue telling about college/high school SAT/ACT scores.

    • Dear Blanca :
      I am interested in your post, “Do we need the SAT/ACT,” because as the class of 2023 many colleges/universities didn’t require them. So I wondered how many schools are choosing to pick students to accept.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “should come to an ending because a number doesn’t represent the value of what a person is able to do it shouldn’t be a profile of a college student.” I think this is agreeable because many are considered less then and this has a huge impact on them.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because your perspective on common relatable things is important for many of us teens. Also because of the way you talk about how you feel on a topic.

  • Dear Susan, I am amazed by your post “Bullying and the LGBTQ+ community” because members of the LGBTQ+ have gone through so many hardships and how all those problems can affect not only an individual but those who surround them. bullying is something that can affect someone mentally and physically.
