District should push creative outlet
At one time, Ruston High School offered a creative writing class, for example. This is the kind of outlet that is absolutely necessary for those who aren’t set to be engineers, scientists or doctors. And even for the technically-minded student, creative writing is the basis for an entire area of our culture — from plays, novels and poetry to journalism.
Superintendent Danny Bell said RHS at one time had a creative writing program, but it seems to have fallen by the wayside as other priorities took over.
