“We can do the math”

magnet.jpgMy mom sends news about students protesting budget cuts to the math, science and computer science magnet program at my alma mater, Montgomery Blair High School. (I didn’t attend the math magnet but rather the “Communication Arts Program,” which probably explains a lot.)

“Larger and more boisterous groups have picketed Montgomery County government, but surely never one with a higher average SAT score.” And! “‘Fund us, Weast,’ the crowd chanted, beckoning to superintendent Jerry D. Weast as about 100 protesters — a few were from schools other than Blair — approached the doors of the school system’s headquarters shortly after 5 p.m. One student beat a bass drum. Another carried a sign that read, ‘We can do the math.’”
