What's so Great about America?
NCSSSMST Journal, v14 n1 p18-19 Fall 2008
In this article, the author cites the unusual attributes of his school. In his school, a focus on mathematics, science, and technology never equated to an absence of other disciplines. In his school, admission came with a price--not a financial debt, but a moral obligation. Ethical leadership and service was engrained in students' hearts, their minds and their souls. One comes to understand that great achievements are not about personal accomplishment, but about personal responsibility. Lastly, one would have experienced what's so great about America if he studies at the author's school.
