Has anyone on here ever had much trouble with the teachers at wbe? My daughter tells me of some of the things they do and it's just not right. My daughter told me the other day that the principal came in the classroom and used a profanity when she was speaking with them. If you ask them they will always deny though. I'm sure some of you teachers will get on here and deny this but I'm not accusing all the teachers there of being like this. Anyone else have any problems there?
Oh yea

I am almost 1000% certain I know who you are talking about. If I am correct, she is really the least of your concerns.(I may disagree with her on most things) but at least she is passionate enough to have an opinion. Which is really a lot more than your get out of most of these talking heads.

If you want to know why this is acceptable. Its becuase their senior management is too busy patting themselves on the back (not real sure about our new superintendent). Instead of management their human and structural resources.

Believe me it gets much worse than you describe. Why don't you ask why children with disabilities (of all sorts) are not being helped. Why don't you ask why the Decatur County Board of Education is under a compliance order from the state (not sure of the official name, but its the same thing) for bad grades or poor process results. Why don't you ask the school board why the 11th graders are having to take a graduation test that is no longer required by the State.(its because they don't know how to measure their annual goals and objectives).

Its really a joke.

If your made of money, this school board will kiss your as*. If your working class people they will railroad your child if you let them. God help your if your a minority child that has difficulties with language or other social issues.

There are a lot of teachers that care, but they are being bull dogged and lambasted if they try to truly help.

We really need a senior management team at the DCBOE that actually gives a damn about the kids, instead of talking about it.

With what I have witnessed, personally, I would dismiss several senior managers and program directors. If I had my way.

If you are a parent of a child that is ADD, ADDHD, Handicapped, Learning Disabled ETC ETC ETC you are holding all the tools that you need to help your child succeed (Federal Law is on your side). The question is; do you have the intestinal fortitude to fight for your childs success. My experience is that most parents do not.
Oh yea

Alyson Matthews would never do such a thing!!!!!!!!!
She is a great hands on principal, she cares about those kids and it's very plain to see.

You wouldn't think so but everyone has bad days and kids just don't make some things up. If I had a camera and ahidden mic, I'd probably be a rich man!!!

My son has Add and a learning disability. When I started finding this out was in the first grade.(he is 24 now) I went through the devastation of being told he was ADD then Learning disabled.I was determined I could fix it. Pushed him sooo hard.Researched..He could be a Genius or a master criminal. I WAS SO SCARED. Finally realized GOD does not make any mistakes. Backed completely off. Looked forstuff he was interested in.

He was in the 5th grade than. He graduated from High School. But that came after I put him in a private school then home schooled. Which he out smarted me. Then we moved to Bainbridge. Dr. CHILDS at WBMS in 96 was the person who helped me change his life. When at the school in Cochran Ga, My mother said I was the Mother from Hell. Yep I was. I was constantly there advocating for him.
He is now independent at 24 has on his on traveled all over the wesr coast and living on his own, successful, HAPPY.
THANK-YOU DR. CHILDS!!!!!!!!!!

WBE Administration/Teachers are the best from the East to the West!
I would also LOVE cameras/mics to be in every classroom so you could see just how loved your child is every day.

I personally, am very pleased with WBE.....my child started out at EKE and that place is truely a joke in its self! If you want to question a school, THAT would be the one b/c they have some serious issues at that school and MANY parents are dissatisfied with them there.

By the way, I'm a parent as well.

I have a child who attends WBE and I have been very disappointed with SOME the teachers. All I ever get is attitude and a friend of mine told me that one of the teachers made the child and another student sit in the back of the class and hold hands while the rest of the class laughed at them as punishment for being disruptive in class. What are they really teaching our kids????

Was your friend in the classroom when that happen, do they know for sure that it really happened? I know that parents don't want to believe that their child would lie but let's get real.....kids tell things to their teachers about their parents that aren't always true......and vice versa!!! So what would you do if teachers got on here and told things that your children told them about you?? As parent of a child that went to WBE and another elementary school in town........WBE was and is the BEST!!!

Well I'm not sure whose post you were referring to Lucy but I happen to think I'm a very good role model for my children, me and my husband work hard to provide a very good home life to our children as well as caring for them in the best way possible weather it being their personal needs or educational needs which is why we moved our daughter to WBE bc she was on a down slide at EKE and is now doing exceptionally well!
