The Clarion is written, edited and produced by members of the JFK Clarion Media club. It is a non-profit publication paid for by advertisements and donations. The Clarion newspaper was established as an open forum for student expression. The content of the Clarion reflects the interests and ideas of students but not necessarily those of JFK administration, faculty and staff.
Schools all over America currently face new math and English standards that were implemented by a group of educators representing many states. These standards, known as Common Core, have proven to be slightly more challenging than the previous standards. Although there are viable justifications for implementing Common CORE, many teachers and students struggle with the material and how it is presented.
