Shoreline Police Blotter 10-6 to 10-20

Monday, October 25, 2010

By Diane Hettrick. Categories and Trends are mine. Reports are from the police. Who could make this stuff up?

Trends: Juvenile runaways have been increasing since school started. It could be that the marginal kids are finding each other at school, or it could be that school is the final stresser to push them over the edge and out of the door. In any event, it certainly helps explain part of the school drop-out rates. More shoplifting than usual this week.

Good point on the "trend" about runaways, and juveniles getting in trouble.

It's a sad fact that the "Great Shoreline School District" with all of it's legendary "quality educational" reputation, can't seem to come up with a plan to help kids who are the "square pegs" or just can't cope with the WASL style stress. The "fuzzy math" concepts and high pressure, is just not conducive to learning for all types of kids.

Many kids these days would benefit from more hands-on types of learning, such as shop, auto repair, music, art, theater, cooking or other tangible types of learning. And yet, those kinds of classes always get short shrift in funding.

You'd think with the HUGE school levy and $150 MILLION Bond elections that the District pulled of (some say fraudulently), there would be plenty of money for all educational styles.

But sadly, if you don't fit the mold in this district, you are out of luck.

Shoreline should be finding every possible tool to help these kids, instead of just shoving these "drop out rates" under the rug. This has been going on in Shoreline School District for many years.

Graduation rates have been a dirty little secret here. Building huge new edifices to attract rich kids won't cut it. It takes more than just fancy new buildings to make a quality education that speaks to every child and family.
