  • Our class was really rooting for the 2nd graders from Myrtle Beach. How about a honorable mention for them, CEE?

  • Congrats to all who submitted– nice work! A special local shout-out goes to North Caroline High School– we face special challenges in our small, rural community given that our job opportunities and resources are more limited than those of our more urban neighbors. Your ideas for tweaking the high school structure are valuable ones– and they’d better prepare our youth for work in terms of confidence, marketability, and overall skills required for independent living! Great work :-)

  • I watched the first video. My impression is that the “winners” are simply the teams who were able to “regurgitate” president Obama’s plan. By choosing those videos you are not rewarding creativity and original thinking or critical thinking….you are rewarding them for it. In fact, the first video seemed to me like the kid was being sarcastic and spoofing the president. Do they really believe that? Or did they intuit that if they told what they thought you would want to hear so they could win?
