As a state delegate, I attended the debate at Juan Diego Catholic High School. I must say how impressed I was with the school.
We were greeted by friendly well-dressed students in attractive uniforms. The school was spotlessly clean. There was no graffiti to be seen anywhere. There were no smashed lockers, and the bathrooms were clean and undamaged. The buildings and campus layout were wonderful. I felt as if I were visiting the campus of a small university.
Having taught in public and private schools, I felt, at least in some small way, we could take a lesson in comportment from these wonderful Juan Diego students and teachers.
