Laudable achievement


For The Daily Item

— I was happy to read the article on our local high school ranking in the top 6 percent of high schools in Pennsylvania, as well as ranking nationwide.

It is always pleasing to know that the education of our children and grandchildren is among the best.

I agree with the article’s acknowledgement of the students, their parents, and administration. I felt the article fell short in acknowledging the role of teachers. It does not matter how well conceived a curriculum is on paper; it will be ineffective, if there is not a qualified and dedicated faculty in the class room. Our teachers deserve credit in this laudable achievement.
