Central High: two-timer UPDATE

Posted By on Mon, May 19, 2008 at 3:15 PM

Word's just in that the Little Rock Central High School team has repeated as national champion in the Federal Reserve Bank's Fed Challenge, in which teams of high school students handle tough questions on economcs and monetary policy.

It ain't football, I know.

But it's worth a $10,000 scholarship for the school and $6,000 for each of the team members. CORRECTION: Money was paid last year. Citibank, sponsor of the awards, withdrew its support this year because of its own money troubles. Still.

UPDATE: Coincidentally, Newsweek, is out with a new edition of its top high schools list, a ranking derived from a formula based on the number of Advanced Placement or similar tests taken at a high school. Of the 1,358 schools ranked, Central is tops among the eight schools in Arkansas making the list, at 36th in the country.

Others on the list; Little Rock Mills, 111; Bentonville, 486; Fayetteville, 536; Fort Smith Southside, 625; Rogers, 1,243, and Arkansas School for Math and Science, 1,355.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
