Around 1996, Mr. Vernon gave me some of the best advise I've ever received. He said "to change the system, you have to first join it." His advice worked, and his candor and courage I applaud. Hoo-ah.

Mr. Vernon is the man. Sure, he doesn't do any work, and he outsources it to the independent study students in the class. But he is a really cool guy if you get to know him. Talk in class and get to know the people there. Everyone is cool in those classes and extremely chill.

Mr. Vernon taught me to teach myself, and that is more than I can say for any other teacher. This class is what you make of it, and so is life.

you have a good class, but you go off on a rant and just keep arguing about politics, which is why i guess you class was so easy cause you were to busy talking to make sure we were working

If you like working on your own reading tutorials and not being taught this is the teacher for you. Your grade is a pot shoot, if he likes you and your policial beliefes, an easy A if not wait till you get your report card. Good Luck!

Mr. Vernon has good intentions, but his teaching methods are somewhat irrational. He doesn't really teach us anything. He just gives us a tutorial to work on which we finish in one or two days and he checks up on our work a month after he assigned it. Also, you should be working on making stuff for your powerpoint, he'll sneak it up on you.

well, mr. vernon is helpful in the real world aspect of things, but he cant keep his own personal opinions about politics to himself. His ideas are so radical.

Doesn't teach anything, if I got a dollar every time he said that there is a good tutorial I'd be freaking rich. Stay on his good side and you'll get an A.
