Dear Rob, Thank you for continuing to highlight the local accomplishments of Northern Rhode Island youth. As I scroll down in the school new section of the Patch I see time after time wonderful stories of degrees earned and awards presented to our great young adults. Most of them are coming right through Woonsocket HIgh, Cumberland High, The vocational schools, Mt. St. Charles. Do you think anyone reads them besides me? With so many people criticizing the school systems you would thing they would take a minute to comment on these accomplishments.

Dear EF, how about posting all the stats. rather than just these "Feel Good" stories on how the school system is doing? How about how the Woonsocket School system compares to others in RI. as far as dropout rates, absenteeism rates, teacher sick day rates and all the other metrics that make up a complete school system, not just focusing on the one or two students that go on to get a degree! Common man! Can you tell it’s WED Budget Time or what? Rob, do some digging will ya! These one sided stories make me sick! Tell the real story.......

EF, After reading your post, I feel that you might have meant the word THINK not THING, in you're last sentence. More important we do understand your view.

EF; Statement, within your post " Do you think anyone reads them besides me?" Was that an actual question, or rhetorical ? Please advise.

Dear Russell, I was asking a question that I was hoping would get an answer. I was also asking a question to see if others would go and read (and comment) about the great things our young Rhode Islanders are accomplishing. So the question is both. Enjoy the banter.

Steve I love how you express yourself "Common man". Thanks for the suggestion, "how about posting all the stats. rather than just these "Feel Good" stories on how the school system is doing?" Do you think that the feel good stories should be ignored? Your other comment is just as helpful "not just focusing on the one or two students that go on to get a degree!" Positive suggestions . Enjoy your morning.
