Re. "Use vs. abuse" by Jeff McAbee, opinion, Dec. 9

The recent column by Jeff McAbee regarding Summit High School's drug
use is a disgrace to the whole district and to the student body. I was
heartbroken to hear one of our own faculty members bash our students,
and in such a blatant fashion. Students are upset about being
stereotyped when such problems occur in schools all over the nation.
Sure, he sees the bad eggs in our school, but those students are not
representative of our entire student population. We are athletes. We
are good students. We are proud Summit High School Tigers, and we are
ashamed of our campus supervisor. To him, this might be a "playground"
for druggies and college students, but to me this is home, and I will
not tolerate someone posting smut about it.
