Mirror should focus on academics, too

It is Sunday morning, Aug. 20, and again the front page of the Altoona Mirror has the following preview “Coming Wednesday, High School Football.”

There is nothing wrong with that. However, every year it is the same thing. There is nothing wrong with that, either.

I was just wondering why the Mirror does not cover high school academics with the same vigor.

You could list what each school in our area is doing academically and vocationally.

You could show the options (courses) that each student has to enhance their future.

We should be made aware of what our schools have to offer at the academic and vocational levels as well as athletically.
