No one draws teenagers as well.

Re previous cartoon comments: expunge nasty mindless graffiti? Seems like once it starts more follows.

I don't understand why this is a new topic just introduced by Ted Strickland. My younger brother went to college instead of going to high school for the 11th grade in 1993. It was called the post-secondary enrollment option. Now maybe Strickland wants to dumb it down and let everyone do it. That might be new.

I could have attended college courses as a high school senior in 1982-83. The only twist Strickland has added is allowing courses for free.

As a parent of rising high school seniors, I'd be all for it!

P.S. I thought the angry rambling was going to be deleted in 2008?

My children, in high school in the 1980s and 1990s, had their advance placement classess count as college credit. So, when each entered college they had 6 or 9 hours of college class completed.

One used the same chemistry text book in college as he had in his senior year of high school.

Nothing new. Good students will do fine.

I went to college my junior and senior year and I graduated from high school in 2004. Tuition and books were free. In fact, with my high school, if you wanted to go to college after HS you had to do that to be taken seriously. Post Secondary is what it was called. A large percentage of my 98 student graduating class did it. Why wouldn't you take up the chance to get two full years of college in during high school?

I may be the youngest person to comment thus far, but let me say that it should not have to come down to this. Too many high school junior and seniors are attending "college" classes, but not receiving adequate instruction. This is a contributing factor to unprepared college freshmen. AP classes are excellent, as long as students are prepared to receive credit through the actual standardized AP tests. Certain "college credit" is not as impressive as it once was due to the lack of standardization. I have met students who receive this "college credit" from an AP class who only achieved a 1 or 2 score on the actual AP test. This is only a sign that we need better funded AP teachers and AP programs, otherwise we are dragging down university education to make up for the gaps in secondary education. This is disheartening.
