Kelly officials should stand firm
To the editor:
I'm not totally aware of the situation with the Kelly High School graduate, but from what I've gathered some young woman wishes to graduate early because she has worked hard to get to where she is. If this young woman is as brilliant as she is made out to be, she will need the extra time to learn in order to prepare herself for the college level. If this girl is not as brilliant as I understand and is just looking to get an early graduation to get away from her education, it is the wrong answer. If Kelly officials allow people to start graduating early due to minimum credits being met, then there is going to be a lot more trouble with early graduation in the future. Kelly officials need to continue taking the stand they are and educate the youth to the greatest of their abilities.
