That's just pitiful, but I bet it's true. Such intimidation should not be allowed and those that do it should be ashamed!
These are OUR children, and their education is important for their future.
It shouldn't matter who you are, what you have, or who you know. If you're a parent you should be more interested in your child's grades, making sure they are doing their homework, attending school, and NOT disrupting classes, bullying other students. If they were more interested in these things instead of how far they can throw a ball, or how fast they can get the touch down, whatever, students grades, and their poor attitudes might change.

There was a time when true teachers Loved to teach. Now, it's all about the money. I believe $40,000 + a year, plus good health insurance, weekends off, plus summer's off.... all this is one hell of a paycheck when Most(not all) teachers spend their time, wasting time. Maybe they should try living on minimun wage for a while. I've seen the massive home "some" teachers live in. They lack absolutely nothing ! It's a sad world we live in when money is all anyone thinks about! What about the kids???

Well i don't wish nothin bad to happen to him, I just hope they put in a Janitors Job,or Driving a school bus or Cooking in a schools or i would like for him to get a pink slip with my name on it. All of this for Christmas he is a disgrace to the education department and one day soon i hope to show the tax payers what a waste of there money is. All you have to do is talk to him a minute and you will find out how stupid he is now this a fact. Be carefull what you ask for because you might just get it. Oh have a Merry Chistmas and a Happy New year, i believe i will have a Happy New Year just wait and see.(QUOTE)!I believe i will be over him soon.

Why are you talking bad about Kim Merida? I believe the person was referring to Charles as you strongly defended him. I believe it was you who said you would tell us who you are? It sounds like you are Charles.

So you are going to be above Kim in January?

The majority of teachers I know LOVE the kids. They spend countless hours after school without receiving a dime of extra pay. Don't stereotype all teachers. I know some very good ones!

Hulette needs to go. Our school system has gone to the dogs since he's been superintendent.
