Xpress, the Coolest Section of the St. Petersburg Times, is the home for features, news and views of interest to young readers. Most of the work in Xpress, which appears on Mondays in Floridian, is produced by the Times' X-Team. The team of journalists ages 9-17 from around the Tampa Bay area is selected every year at the end of the school year to serve during the following school term. The current team of 12 was chosen out of 150 applicants. Watch for X-Team application forms in Xpress during the month of May.

Why stay in school?
I wonder, is school for everyone? I have never felt like I fit in at school, and my grades prove it. I'm not sure if I am an "underachiever" or just not very smart. I don't know if it really matters. What matters to me is that I have never been comfortable with my nose in a book! Is there any future for me without a high school education?
