Romanian Education Crisis
Romania's gymnasts failed their Baccalaureate exams and are borderline illiterate (or at least Chelaru is.) Dracula's daughters are required to attain an average score of 6.0 and at least a 5.0 (out of 10.0) in each subject they test in order to receive a high school diploma. These girls are making the Spring Creek students who can only ever dream of attending school in the SEC or Arizona appear like downright scholars. As usual, it is NOT Bela's fault. It is good these girls are responsible for flashing their own vault numbers or registering themselves for competitions. These girls did not even take the math exam, thus it limits their university options. Ultimately, they're all going to be PE Teachers...if they're lucky. Diana Chelaru, the resident scholar, does not have many options after being Romanian on bars and laughed at by her teammates for her effort on beam at Saturday's quad meet.
