Atlanta Journal-Constitution Letter Response

Priorities out of whack in Cobb

Cobb County's Pebblebrook High School has sacrificed its journalism program so that popular courses such as cosmetology, of all things, can remain in the curriculum ("Cobb school loses its 'voice,' " Metro, May 19).

I don't think it is possible to send a worse message about the public school system and the kind of education children are likely to receive there. Let's hope someone on the school board is paying attention.
