December 14, 2015

Filed under Opinion

BY ASHLEY BERTHOLF AND NILAB HABIB [email protected] To be totally honest, our class as a whole is pretty upset with everything surrounding the situation regarding Advanced Placement credits in the AP Government and Economics block.

EYE OF THE TIGER’S VIEW: Court changes risk female majority

December 14, 2015

Filed under Opinion

Changes to the court selection process meant to promote equal representation of the student population could potentially be the start down a slippery slope toward a female-dominated court system. One of the most prominent revisions to the existing dance court system includes a discontinuation of the five boys and five girls ratio. A minimum of two girls and boys will have...

DOOLITTLE: Holiday generosity popular for self gain

December 14, 2015

Filed under Opinion

BY ALEXX DOOLITTLE [email protected] Although good deeds are often done by good people, I’m starting to notice that kind hearts and generosity are more of trends and tedious obligations to younger generations than a social responsibility. Something I recently learned in my psychology class and seeing it in action around the holiday season incites my attem...

TRAN: Value experiences over social media

December 14, 2015

Filed under Opinion

  BY NATALIE TRAN [email protected] Everyone nowadays feel the pull of our cell phones and the urge to get updated. Almost every facet of our lives is connected to our phones in some respect and this need to check it makes sense.

MULLIGAN: Road construction could solve common alley traffic problem

December 14, 2015

Filed under Opinion

BY JOHNNY MULLIGAN [email protected] Attending a school that is over 100 years old makes it easy to understand why the parking and traffic situation around school is horrible. There is almost no flow to the senior lot and having parents picking up their students further exacerbates the problem. The most problematic but crucial, part of this troubled system...

BASSARAB: Time to move past physical textbooks

December 14, 2015

Filed under Opinion

BY ALBINA BASSARAB [email protected] It has come to really bother me coming home each day to a pile of textbooks gathering dust and knowing how pointless they really are. For about half of my classes, most textbooks are hardly touched throughout the school year. Some of them are far outdated, too, which obviously can teach false or outdated lessons, which is likely...

SCHMITTNER: Handle kids in class rather than the office

November 9, 2015

Filed under Opinion

BY KADEN SCHMITTNER [email protected] Whenever I see a kid get in trouble in class for arguing, breaking the classroom rules, or distracting others, they almost always just get sent up to the office for admin to deal with. What I’m not sure is if those handing out the punishments realize that being sent to the office is exactly what most of these kids w...

RHODE: Uphold professionalism while working at school

November 9, 2015

Filed under Opinion

BY HUNTER RHODE [email protected] Everyone sees high school differently, but despite the different views on how you ultimately want your high school experience to be, everyone is working toward the same goal - graduation. When someone tells you that high school flies by, they aren’t wrong. If I were to reflect on my four years at Roseville High School, I woul...

EYE OF THE TIGERS VIEW: Cultural policies must go deeper

November 9, 2015

Filed under Opinion

Roseville Joint Union High School District’s changing attitude toward bolstering an atmosphere of cultural acceptance is a step in the right direction, but it shouldn’t be the last. In late October, the district launched the first of a series of speakers on “sustaining culture” and “strengthening community” and proposed the formation of a standalone policy as a...
