LETTER: Clark 5 should be proud of their perfect ACT scores

Those five students who got perfect scores on the ACT college admission test deserve high praise indeed (May 22 Review-Journal). That requires a lot of time and effort. It is even more remarkable because it was done while the Clark County School District wiped out any sort of standards.
