It sat on the corner of my desk and they all knew where it was and it’s power…the teacher’s demerit book. It was the dreaded scorekeeper of a student’s lack of progress, behavior problems or not complying with the rules. Picking up the “D book” (really a 99 cents composition book from the Dollar Store)

  ALGOP had the rare treat of having former Republican Presidential candidate Senator Rick Santorum for three events this past week.
