At Kerr high school, they say that the students can work at their own pace and turn in PAK at their own time. These PAKs are personal activity kits that are designed to help the students learn. It is a lie. the students dont get to work at their own pace. they get the PAK and get assigned a due date which is usually a week long. is that really working at your own pace then?

This is a question partially but in Kerr if you get behind it is impossible to get back on track. Really the PAKS should have due dates. Being behind is bad. It is almost like giving up.

What you say is true but that still doesn't address my question of whether or not Kerr students really work at their own pace. However, if you are truly selected to Kerr, then you will not procrastinate and you still work on PAKs and will turn them in by the end of the year. That is working at your own pace. Not stressing over due dates that add more stress to your work.

I can't really say much since my opponent forfeited the round. There is nothing to say now that there is one round left.

Beginning that that school is among the Top 1000 out of 18,000 makes it a great school and behind in a school like Kerr is like climbing Mt. Everest hard and I mean super-hard but not impossible
