Surviving high school with The Tattoo's help

In today's issue of The Tattoo, Youth Journalism International students in seven countries weigh in on high school life, with advice on everything from surviving art class to getting through that first day as a freshman. It's all part of a package of back to school tips that we started a decade ago and now includes almost two dozen issues chock full of practical advice that can help anyone navigate the topsy turvy years before college.
In this issue, we have work from Eugenia Durante in Italy, Caroline Nelissen in the Netherlands, Jenna Potter in Canada, Janani Ramachandran in India, Nicole Megan Gounder in South Africa, Tasman Anderson in Australia and five students in the United States - Luke Pearson and Jacqueline Mejia in New York, Gokce Yurekli in New Jersey, Brice Birdsall in Oregon and Mary Majerus-Collins in Connecticut. It's an incisive, comprehensive take on high school.
Students in Youth Journalism International are gearing up for our 16h year of taking teens seriously. We've got lots of enthusiastic youngsters who eager to learn about journalism, writing, the world and each other. It's a great program.

What's the matter . Do the teachers need outside help creating home-grown terrorists ??

They've done a pretty good job of manipulating the youth to distroy/damage the war memorials on the boulevarde .

What the heck are you talking about? There's nothing at all in there about the Boulevard or war memorials or terrorism.
And for that matter, where do you get off suggesting that vandalism on the Boulevard is somehow connected to teachers?
Go crawl back under your rock.

When the teachers 'educated' their students that the military are terrorists and nazis and the referred to the the former president as Hitler , it thus creates an environment conducive to the actions that took place on the boulevard .

Oh how soon some of us forget .
