Um, if Mr. Morrison thinks that calculators are one of the latest classroom advancements, my opionion of the leadership at NWRHS has been diminished.

Mr. Morrison is the best (and I have known them all) leader Northwest Rankin has ever had. And the calculators you speak of are for the advanced math classes and cost approximately $250 a piece. So I applaud Mr. Morrison and the rest of the leadership at one of Mississippi's only Star Schools!
