Sometimes, I still get that awful dream that I'm back in college, lost on campus, and missing the last class I need to get my degree and get back to work at CNN. It's not real, of course, but it comes with a sense of desperation that some Clayton County, Georgia students are facing for real today.
Consider what Genetta Reeves recently went through when her school lost its accreditation. Reporter Rusty Dornin described it as "an unbelievable nightmare," though Reeves' college of choice accepted her anyway because of her good grades. But what about those students who won't get accepted if their school system doesn't shape up? Just imagine what it would be like to do the work you're supposed to, get the grades you're supposed to, and then get rejected from college because some school officials weren't doing their jobs.
