[LCSD] "In defense of LHS math teacher"

An LHS student writes a letter to the editor. My favorite part:

Mr. Helland not only grades in such a way that gives ample time for his students to better comprehend what he is teaching, but he offers his time as well. He offers his own personal time to help students with individual problems well before and after school, during lunch, and even during any free periods a student may have. This gives students with other commitments, such as a job after school, a way to meet with him. Failure to get help from Mr. Helland, or even getting less than a ‘C' in his class is more likely from lack of trying and not lack of opportunity. This is called accountability.

Oh snap!

What I wouldn't give to have the opportunity to teach that student! Is it possible to carbon copy that letter to the Barometer? I'd love to hear what kind of discussion OSU students would have about accountability...
