Letter of the Week: Grades stress students

Madison Andela of Blue Springs, a 15-year-old sophomore  at Blue Springs South High School, writes: "A letter can’t determine how hard a student is working. The high expectations and intense pressure schools put on grades pushes students to cheat. Rather than try to learn the information, students are simply trying to get the best grade."
