Просто круто.

Валя, это не просто круто. Как написали в комментариях по ссылке, "Bureaucrats forget that the point of school is to prepare you for life, not school for school sake. Taking a year away to do something that builds character and teaches what a physics, math, or biology class can only simulate or show on a screen, is a good thing. Their objections are comical, because she demonstrates the same dedication and single-minded focus we require of young Olympic athletes. Yet we celebrate them on Wheaties boxes and with government funding, despite the risk of devastating injuries and addictions. This is the second time she made her attempt, and she did it regardless of any official recognition. Congratulations! That's one 16 year old who isn't being trained to think inside the box and live as a cog in the corporate gears. "

Лаура выросла Человеком, с большой буквы и это больше чем просто круто. :)
