Question of the Day — Renton High’s B+ Fans

Issue: Renton officials require B+ average for fans to attend state tourney day game: Many upset as only 6 of 1000 qualify for day game/Robert L. Jamieson Jr., Seattle PI

Additional Info: School officials made the controversial decision to put class work and student achievement ahead of fan frenzy and rooting for the team. In order for students to attend the contest in Tacoma, students could not have more than two unexcused absences this semester. They could not have outstanding assignments. They had to have a 3.3 grade-point average.

Question: Columnist Jamieson said school officials made the right decision. Do you agree?
