  • Students voice concerns following PARCC protests

    The controversy over the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) test began last week as it was implemented throughout the state of New Mexico.
    PARCC tests are administered to students in grades third through 11 and test mastery of course content to make sure the student is on track with regards to college readiness standards.
    This year marks the first time the PARCC test is being administered and it is receiving its share of criticism. While adults and parents are concerned about the necessity of the new standardized test, its most vocal critics have been students.
    On Monday, as testing began, hundreds of high school students across the state walked out of their classrooms to protest the implementation of the PARCC test. This form of protest continued at New Mexico high schools on Wednesday.

  • From Leather to Lace: Hairstyles and color for a tech era

    The fashion hair repertoire is anything but scarce.
    From bobs to pinks and purples, there’s always something new and original to try, perhaps divulge from Rapunzel’s golden hair.
    The past few months have been no different in bringing to the stage a new and “trendy” creation.
    This time it’s pixelated hair, the dying skill that effectively demonstrates a stylists skill and taste.
    In reality though, pixelated hair seems to have missed the mark, much like the earlier checkered hair trend from 2004.
    Though pixelated hair appears cohesive on the “wearer’s” head, it is unadaptable to the styles that are currently making top news in every high-flying fashion magazine.
    Floral, sophisticated, and minimalistic all clash with pixelation.
    But perhaps, that clash is exactly what the fashion scene needs right now.
    Undoubtedly the new hairdo would do quite well matched with a leather jacket.
    Perhaps, this invention will bring out the inner edge in every type of person and every ensemble.
    That’s ultimately up to you to decide. Give it a try and see what you like. Better now than never.

  • Ladino shares love of history with students

    Robyn Ladino, a New Mexico and United States history teacher at Los Alamos High School, grew up as an “Air Force brat.”
    “I lived in many different places as a child,” Ladino said. “During my lifetime I have moved to new places 14 times, including 22 different homes. Each new place had a history with unique characteristics.”
    She explained that the experiences of living in so many places influenced her desire to teach students about the world around them. Ladino wanted to teach history because she believes the study of history allows people to learn from their past, manage their present and hopefully make their future promising.
    When asked about the importance of students’ understanding the founding fathers framing of the United States Constitution, Ladino said, “I believe students must apply their knowledge and understanding of the U.S. Constitution as up-and-coming responsible citizens. Students need a clear understanding of their rights under the Constitution in order to make sound responsible decisions within our democracy as they move toward becoming adults.”
    In regards to New Mexico history, Ladino said students need this history knowledge because New Mexico is a very unique state, unlike any other in terms of beauty, magnificent diversity and dynamic history.
